u know...you have a closing for a transaction..and the lazy asses that do not do any of the work (ie clients and partners) want to have 10 status update calls everyday to make themsleves feel better about not doing any work...and you are no better off after the status update call because you still have to do all the work that you already knew you had to do before the call...bascially all the status update call did was make you waste the time you should have spent taking care of closing items

in my department we are so lean at the associate level one large deal will basically kill all associates

so the head of the department basically told me if i want a bonus i better work my ass off to make my hours..(2000 minimum and i billed 200+ hours in 4 of last 5 months)..

I would steal your jobs in a fucking heart beat. Both at the same time; WHILE burning the candle at both ends AND rubbing two sticks together to make a fire. Seriously, I lust for employment. Skadden doesn't seem to understand that they NEED me...

For $.16 million in salary as an entry associate they can kill me slowly with dental equipment applied to the balls. Plus, I like FERC Order 888 compliance stuff. ERISA makes me slightly erect as well.

I look up to Patrick Bateman and Skadden seems like a firm full of Patrick Batemans; I guess I feel that I'd fit right in. Have you listened to the new Huey Lewis and the News album? Billing 90 hours a week is possible... with Genesis mix tapes.

turducken - And you don't want to go to Skadden. Cravath is more prestigious. Wachtell is all douches.

DAMN YOU BERNARD MADOFF! An AmLaw 100 firm was supposed to scoop me up right out of law school. But noooooooooo you and those fucks at AIG, Bear Stearns, Lehman, BOA, Wachovia and the rest had to send the DJIA into the 6200s during my 3L year. Thanks assholes, legal aide looks fucking GREAT.

I fucking hate criminals and criminal law!

You could waive into D.C. and try your luck down there. It worked for a couple of my friends, but this was a few years back.

Good luck with your job search, in any event.

conviser - MMA Sports Agent - *Wallows in self pity*You could waive into D.C. and try your luck down there. It worked for a couple of my friends, but this was a few years back.Good luck with your job search, in any event.Thanks but I didn't break 133 on the MBE, and I am in NYC for the indefinite future. I had work lined up in DC lobbying congress but then my wife got into Columbia. Fake Pie - Skadden is full of douches with very few exceptions.Dude, $.16 million; I'd work for TapouT pre-death-of-Mask for that amount of money.goku - patrick bateman is alpha...lawyers are the very definition of beta...you are a BITCH...even when you are a big shot partner...you are still someone else's BITCHI'm aware of this and can handle it, I need cold hard mother fucking cash. An attorney is always his client's bitch and I've dealt with some real douchebag gatekeeping cunts in prior employment, now I'm just trying to get paid. Even Patrick Bateman can't get reservations at some restaurants.

lol...refer to fake pie's drawing

during normal working hours, the partners and senior associates will take the work themselves leaving you with nothing to do.... but the expectation of course is that you still be present and willing to work at all times

when its a shit project (ie  after hours, weekends, shitty client, a rush project, or a holiday)  the partners and senior associates will allow the shit to stream downhill to you

congrats!
