Sure, at my firm --

Oh wait, that's right, we're all still hoping to get offers and have developed loyalty to the places that are paying us gobs of money this summer. I'm happy to gossip with friends, but I doubt many people would be willing to do this, even with the anonymous feature.

As an interesting aside, places that DO compile this info (Vault, etc.) usually do it by surveying people as they leave the firm (i.e. when most loyalty has been extinguished).

TITCR. Reading Vault/ATL's Career Center will give you a somewhat accurate picture, and then once you receive an offer from a place, I recommend you talk with a bunch of junior associates at the firm, as well as anyone from your school who summered there the previous year. Also, google any firm you are seriously considering after receiving an offer, and see what the latest (within 6-12 months) news is about the firm -- major cases/deal, lateral hiring, losing partners, revenue/profits per partner, layoffs, etc -- in order to choose the best firm for you. TLS is not the place where you'll get the kind of information you're looking for.
