I've never heard of an associate in on Saturdays, and many work from home on Fridays. Hours are also lenient for the first few years, apparently.


Are these mostly tax jobs?

Not entirely, but mostly (including mine.) The highest salaries are in M&A and you can expect starting 140k w/ 1800-1900 hours. Most M&A associates are laterals, though there was a minority of 1st years.
