Is anyone able to share more about the culture, hours, etc at international firms in Singapore, particularly Clifford Chance?

I wonder if my situation is common for training

Am doing my TC

But spending my weekends in office from 830 am to 1 am for saturday and sunday weekends

for weekdays the hours end at 2 am

there is too much work.

yet when I submit my work to bosses or associates, they are always not happy with my draft and throw it back at me for more amendments.
I kept getting scolded.
I am disheartened and wonder if law is really for me at all.

I'm in an international firm. Hours are erratic because clients all over the world. Depending on which office is coordinating/lead office things only get worse. Fast moving and you are expected to always be on the ball.

Everyone seems to be either unhappy or just feeling "meh" at best here. Are there any happy lawyers out there? It would be great to have some positivity in this thread.

It's a contradiction of terms to say that there's a happy lawyer.

Got lah. some people hit the sweet spot: decent pay, understanding boss, acceptable hours.

U think being miserable is the only permutation meh.

That's the reason behind the attrition rate. the people feeling miserable will quit. those that aren't, either because they like practice or it is tolerable for them, stay on.
