Boies Schiller v. Quinn Emanuel (Life Quality & People)

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Aug 25, 2011 7:35 pm

Don't discuss prestige or "exit options." I need to make this decision ASAP. Thanks!

I am really looking for opinions on who has better people, and where do you have better quality of life. In other words, where would you go and why?

I would really appreciate opinions from people who summered, or currently work at either firm - or someone who used to work there.

(Opinions like: they both suck are unhelpful.)

Thanks!

Why do you have 8 options when 4 would provide the same information?

I'm not typing them all out for you, but for example...Boise has better both = Quinn is worse for both

I suppose that is true. However, I think there is a subtle difference. If someone wants to stress that Quinn is a bad place, they don't want to pick "Boise is better for both." They want to pick "Quinn is worse for both."

To each his own.

you should make a 2D chart with axes for "quality of life" and "quality of people" and let people put a dot where each firm stands haha.

You seem dumb. The likelihood of anyone being able to make a comparative judgment without isolating a market is low.

Seriously. How do you get an offer from these firms and not understand that each option is presented twice in your poll?

Betting on low likelihoods is not necessarily "dumb." Especially when nothing is at stake if you lose. :-)

So, I am a little confused. What would someone who picked Boies has better people but worse QOL instead of Quinn has worse people but better QOL be trying to stress?

I'd like to learn to be able to consider such subtleties.

The choices are clearer with all 8 options. When you reduce options, it requires more thinking, and the less thinking the better.

I have found that you get greater and more accurate results when you ask people for less work.

It is just a fact of life. People are lazy. :-)

If you look closely, one of them's asking about Boise, not Boies.

Maybe, except that noone has voted for that option yet. And I have cast my vote... :-)

The fact you are still attempting to debate what was clearly a fuck up when it was done anonymously is fucking killing me right now. Can't stop laughing.

Really? The fact that Boies has better people but worse quality of life.

I can only imagine TS tests really well...but has no social skills whatsoever.

It's the only thing that can explain the supposed offers from both of these firms, plus the hilarity of this thread.

Do you really think you could infer anything meaningful from the selection of 1 of those options versus the other?

I'm bummed this thread tanked because of the crappily-worded poll. Would have wanted anyone's take who felt they had something to say, particularly regarding their respective Bay Area offices (Quinn SF and Boies Oakland to be specific).

I'd love to hear about Boies's Florida offices! (applying soon).
