2012 Associate Survey

The Best Places to Work


To find out how third-, fourth-, and fifth-year associates rate their firms as workplaces, our annual midlevel survey examined 12 ­areas that contribute to job satisfaction. They include relations with partners and other associates, the interest and satisfaction level of the work, training and guidance, policy on billable hours, management's openness about firm strategies and partnership chances, the firm's ­attitude toward pro bono work, compensation and benefits, and the respondents' inclination to stay at their firm for at least two more years. Respondents graded their firms on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest score. On this chart, firms with 10 or more responses are ranked by their averages on those questions.
