GT is known to be super cheap, super budget conscious, and as you say, super cold hearted. A very “it’s not personal; only business” type outfit. I’m sure it’s great for some. But I wouldn’t go there as an associate. It’s black box because it’s fucking almost everyone.

What's your advice would be for a rising 3L with an offer from GT? To look elsewhere or later after first year given the hiring freeze, not to mention firms rarely hire 3Ls -- if they do, they want someone to fill in specialist roles/niche practice groups?

Just take the offer and work hard. Learn some transferable shit. Understand at the outset that your salary and raises will be below market. But look man, even whatever GT pays is a lot better than what other places pay. So look at the bright side. Sooner or later, you’ll get lots of opportunities to lateral. Think about it if it comes up. GT works out for lots of people. Maybe you’re one of them.
