It definitely depends, and I don't think it's Kirkland-specific. As you'd expect, the attorneys with families or even just spouses at home tend to leave at decent hours and work from home if they have to; the single attorneys tend to come in later and stay in the office later and then go out afterwards.
At least on the west coast, I'd say that the corporate groups party more. There may just be a higher concentration of single folks there though.
As for the closed-door thing, I don't really see much of that. Generally a collegial group -- while the firm is known for being cut-throat, that seems to be more external than internal. The associates (to my surprise, to be honest, given KE's reputation) actually get along really well because there is more than enough work and reward for everybody.
OP here. Thanks
