the prob is tt they're unprofitable messes stuck w bottom feeding clients and outmatched by internationals in every sector of the market.
So not so much firm specific but the sg legal market is what you have a problem with

Heard that WongP Litigation also gave out TCs to second lowers.

How the mighty have fallen, maybe should just have a Big 3, not Big 4, and certainly not Big 5.

Well this is how it is in the sg scene and not firm specific, and the diff betw b4 and the others arenít that big now with the not so recent adjust.

Sh it pay, long hours, backwards mentality, tech n infrastructure stuck in the 90s, toxic management which includes micromanagers, capricious partners n treating staff like babies.

Mid tier sinkie law firms are really just local SMEs if u think abt it , except to the uninformed layman there's a veneer of 'prestige' of the legal industry. people in industry know better.

not that the B4 are much better, but u get exit ops, even shinier veneer of 'prestige' (again to the layman) and slightly better pay.

I would most definitely not be proud to say I'm a lawyer in a local mid tier firm lol. B4 at minimum, or inhouse or international better. Otherwise GTFO of law.
