Same lmao ending at 10pm is a pretty average day for me.

The two points at which I would say it is considered really bad is: (1) You're not getting sufficient sleep on a regular basis or (2) you have to work more than 10 hours on the weekend.

Is this about the MBFC Tower 1 firm or firms in general?

For those of you looking for jobs, it is likely that partners are more prudent in hiring even if the firm isnít on a hiring freeze. It is unlikely that you will be employed through a zoom interview. Letís hope for phase 3 to come quickly so people can get back into office and partners will be more willing to conduct interviews in person.

But I thought the law firms usually boast about how they are willing to embrace technology?

I posted about the Baker vacancy earlier.

If you wanna take on the verbal insults you will get on a daily basis, toxic environment where colleagues don't really help you and almost criminal work hours. Then yea, the 7k salary is pretty worth it

There's been a rash of associate turnovers recently because of the working environment.

Depends also lah. If you are 0 to 85th percentile of law batch, to get an opportunity there is alr v good. That's the only way to get BM. If you between 85th and 100% percentile, then of course should aim for the real International firms (ie no JV except for CC)
