People were almost all gone from the office by 7:30 (unsure how much remote work happened from home later) etc. And they explicitly disclaim tying compensation to billable hours. The expectation is still somewhere in the 1900 to 2000 range (200 of which can be pro bono), but there isn't a lot of pressure to be hitting the higher numbers. HTH.
fwiw I have heard the exact opposite about Jones Day (s, Nights, and Weekends)
I'm the first anon above. I can only speak to the DC office so maybe it's different elsewhere. Honestly, I think the Jones Day[s and Nights] joke exists more because it's an obvious play on words than because it's actually true (or at least compared to other V20 firms in DC/NYC). I have heard that the Texas office(s) refer to the NYC/DC offices that way; welcome to the big city. But people also refer to the firm as Mother Jones, not because it bears any resemblance to the liberal/progressive magazine but because it's a natural play on words and evokes a funny mental image. Ok carry on.
