Job Offers- Help Me Choose

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Sep 08, 2012 10:27 am

I'm fortunate enough to have several job offers. I want to go into litigation, but outside of that, I don't really know what practice area I'm most interested in. I care more about work/life quality than any other factor, and prestige is only relevant insofar as I might want to use the firm's name to move on to a government job someday. While I understand that BigLaw will require me to work long hours, I want to work at the most tolerable place with people who don't take themselves too seriously.

Any feedback is appreciated.

Mayer Brown is stronger in DC. MoFo is stronger nationally.

Bumping this -- similar choice. Why MoFo over MB?
