I got paid over $3k this week to copy and paste cases and statutes into a word document. Plus got plenty of free breakfasts and lunches, but only free alcohol once. Am I getting shortchanged?

Mal, you're so delightfully curmudgeonly. Neva change.

One week down - going pretty well. 9 more weeks of not massively screwing up.

How are we all doing?

5 days of training + reception of joke work assignment with zero outside-the-firm implications = :lol:

Short answer: It's good

Executive partner of the office, at lunch: "our target is about 1800 hrs., and I'd say most of our associates average about that, maybe up to 1900"

Litigation associate after several drinks at reception: "I'm on track for 2300 hours this year."

Beautiful.

*managing partner drops in on SA meeting today*

"Got some bad news for you guys. We're going to have to let you all go."

*looks of panic, nervous laughter*

"Just kidding. Ha ha [goes on to discuss practice area]"

*more nervous laughter, looks of relief/what the fuck*

True story.

You guys have got to stop asking non-anon posters to out the firm when they're telling stories that don't make the firm look good. Why would they ever answer that question.

Got a couple SA research assignments this past week where the answer just didn't exist. I said as much and didn't receive a response--should I be worried? Full disclosure: one of these research questions was relevant to preparing an expert witness and it was asked about 90 minutes before the partner started preparing the witness...and he expected the answer in those 90 minutes. I wasn't able to get a good answer in that time frame, and just gave the partner my incomplete answer.

Nervous. Should I be?

Best part is that egregiously over the top trolling doesn't even stand out so much because this thread is shit. It's full of crazy.

I don't think so - maybe alting during his SA so as not to be linked to his nefarious past.

I'd be careful, if you can't anonymously vent your impotent rage on the internet it might come out in person during the SA and get you no offered.
