What's your style? Asking about mentorship and guidance is kinda pointless in a vacuum.

An earlier post was talking about "Fit", and I think that's correct. Give you world's best lawyer but no fit, mentorship won't work out.

I have actually had good mentors when I was training at a big 4. No handholding and we were expected to be self-reliant but at least they were there when I needed help.

Yeah I'm the OP on that. Good mentors are hard to find, and good means you must at the very least fit for people to like and mentor you.

So when you say retention is not about merit - sometimes this is true. I can give you a Cambridge double first who wins cases by the sheer power of research but if he does not fit, I cannot imagine him being retained.

Some lawyers are more chin chye about fit than others i.e. you do your job can alr. Others more mindful.

The secret to finding a job/getting retained, all things aside, is fit. The boss is likely to retain someone who they can work with and they like working with, not someone who they cannot stand.
