Not talking about the experience, bro. Talking about exit options. Those are different things entirely.
Bro? Lol. Yes, biglaw has great exit options. To clarify, I'm the person who wrote the post about people shit talking biglaw, and then doing OCI. My problem isn't with people who pursue biglaw planning to exit down the line. That's part of the business model. I just dislike people who act as if they had some moral objection to big private firm work, but are willing to do it as their back up plan. The end.
And I have a moral objection to a lot of the work that these firms do and yet am still pursing it. So I guess you dislike me. I am terribly upset about all of this.
I don't think anyone will have a problem with you if you keep your opinion about biglaw to yourself and do not publicly denounce their work. Life is tough, and one has to make a living, support family, whatever. If you have moral objection to biglaw but are forced to do it for whatever reason, the moral turmoil is yours to bear.
However, if someone publicly denounces biglaw and then actively seeks OCI - I would find that person very insincere. (Please note: if that person actually changed their mind about biglaw work, or at least stopped trashing biglaw firms, it will be fine with me. People change their opinion all the time, and I don't think that's problematic, as long as they don't register as "insincere.")
Edit: Also, please note that I only have issues with "public" denouncements.
