If you want an easy job with normal business hours and forgiving managers, you're crazy to go to a large firm. At ML&B, like at every large firm, you will work long hours and you'll be held to high standards when it comes to the quality of your work and how quickly you respond when needed. What Morgan does that other firms don't do, however, is provide flexible options for their employees to meet their obligations without sacrificing their entire lives. What Morgan also does is ensure that its attorneys are able to take care of themselves by, for instance, liberally granting paid leave during extended medical-based absences. Overall, there is a sense that once you are hired, the partners genuinely want you to succeed at the firm and to become your best professional self without having to live and breathe your job.
