Employee Benefits usually means ERISA, which governs how employee health and retirement plans are governed. Practically speaking, ERISA is like if tax and trust estates had a baby, who then grew up and became sort of unpopular at parties. It's sorta dense and awkward, but no one is sure exactly what it's doing wrong.

As far as lifestyle, think closer to transactions than litigation

I had a CB with the EB department of a boutique EB/Tax firm today. I liked the vibe and the work seems really intricate. Apparently a lot of their clients are general counsel departments.

I took an entire class on ERISA. It sucks. Hopefully, you won't have to deal with any of the preemption bullshit.
