Dangers of Big Firms in Secondary Markets?

Postby Citizen Genet » Wed Aug 10, 2011 12:49 pm

Is there any common wisdom on which offices are the "safest" to go to, given the economy? I know there was a thread that focused on which firms were dangerous as a matter of rumor (which quickly devolved into naming almost every Vault 100 firm...) but I am more concerned about primary v. secondary markets.

For instance, I am most interested in working in San Diego, but would an LA office be safer, or even Orange County for that matter? Thoughts?

rumor has it that a lot of the national offices in san diego are still laying people off. thats about all I can help you out with. my guess is that because its such and insular market, once you get your foot in the door you should be alright.
