What about Susman?
Which is harder to get Susman or W&C? I have a buddy with a SA at W&C this summer, he is pretty pumped. But no they dont do bonuses on top of their above market salary. First years get 180,000 which easily makes up for the measily bonuses we have been mentioning
At some point though the differential stops mattering. By the time you hit the V10 or the elite boutiques, you have already given up on work-life balance. There isn't family, or free time, or sleep; it's just figuring out which is the least likely to drive you insane before you can lateral out.
I really doubt that the hours at Cadwalader are lighter than the hours at Cleary. Silly distinction is silly.
