if you're going from associate to associate it's not lateralling down, assuming no paycut. vault rankings are flame meant for law students

it's going from AGC to corporate counsel that would be lateralling down

people way more chill, way more latitude to do things your own way and wing it. people for the most part take themselves far less seriously. just much more pleasant working conditions

unnnggggh

i've heard it's a mixed bag. some people report that lower ranked firms are even more psychotic since there's more pressure to compete on cost. really hoping to find something like you describe.

people are everything. you need to find out who youll be working with and probe deeply.

def could see the dynamic you describe playing out. its more like 95% of people at v5 are psychopaths, maybe 50% when you go down to like v50

I lateralled v10 to Dewey.

We all know how that turned out lol.

But aside from that, vault rankings donít matter as long as you get paid the same. Also try to get better qol, but thatís not tied to rankings either. I did get better qol, but that might be a function of switching markets and moving to a smaller branch office.

adding on to what nutella said, watch out for how much padding you can get away with in shitty biglaw. top biglaw is generally going to have mega-cases and not notice padding. shitty biglaw might sometimes operate more like midlaw and it might be harder to pad. 2000 if you cant pad much at a shitty biglaw could be worse than a 2200 at top biglaw where you can pad a ton

you cant pad as easily in some shitlaw-esque midlaw or lower biglaw shop with cheap clients where the partner pressures you into not reporting all your time bc he doesnt want to be the one taking writeoffs himself.

yep - works out okay. Just make sure you understand the comp structure because it can vary wildly for firms in the AMLAW 200 versus vault firms.

no, i would have never made partner at my V10 and my current situation is probably as good as I could have hoped for given my ability, personality and work ethic.
