I take the empathy that has emerged in the last few posts as proof that big law is awesome. Everyone is so warm and nice.

leave to make GS 13 at rando government agency and never looks back.


The fact that you spend so much of your time on these forums talking about biglaw and how much it sucks (among other asinine topics) says just as much about how much people in biglaw suck as it does about how much biglaw sucks.

no, i think i do. i don't mean it personally--i don't know anyone here personally. i just think for people who you would think are busy, constant posts on an internet forum about how shitty your job is says as much about the person as it does about the job. a lot of people hate their job. my 2 cents.
