So grow up, stop bashing to feel better about your own situation and get facts right before u bash. Else go write for sgag instead.

Agreed. Just join a PROPER International Firm.

Hint: they start 1st Years at 15k-24k. Any lower, (cough the 9k or whatever), then itís notninternational at all.

What do we make of the silver circle / other firms that start at around 11k - 12k? Hogan Lovells, Reed Smith, Norton Rose?

I would rather stick with Big 4 than join one of those firms. You may earn slightly more money for a few years but partnership prospects are much worse.

I think people here just like to type **** for the fun of it. Behind every insult here isn't an aggrieved guy foaming at the mouth - it's just someone looking for a laugh.

Objectively speaking:

Does Baker have strong and weak teams? Yes, it's a mix. Their tax team is strong and litigation teams are weak.

Do they pay well? Yes - much better than B4 but slightly lower than silver circle.

Do they give good exit opportunities? Depends on which team you are in. See above.

How is the litigation team weak though? Don't they have a few prominent partners in the team - a number of whom mentioned from time to time even in this forum?
