The Wrong Job - Even in This Economy

New York Law Journal

I am a first-year associate who was misled about the kind of work I would be doing. To make matters worse, the pay is extremely low, the partners are verbally abusive and the firm is managed very poorly, with most policies made up as they go along, often leading to inconsistent treatment. When is a realistic time for a first year associate looking to move to a small or mid-sized firm to start looking for a new job?
