Vault Announces the Best Law Firms to Work For

We recognize that prestige is just one factor among many for law students and associates searching for the right law firm. For some candidates, quality of life weighs far more heavily in their considerations than a firm's reputation in the community. That's why each year Vault compiles its "Quality of Life" rankings, in addition to its rankings of the most prestigious law firms. Read More >

On Wall Street You Might Get Vacation, But You Can’t Take It

Investment banking analysts and associates notoriously work very long hours. It's not uncommon for a corporate finance analyst at a prestigious bank in New York to regularly work more than 90 hours each week, or for an M&A or restructuring associate to put in more than 80 hours week after week.

How To Have Summer Fridays If You Don't Have Summer Fridays

Many moons ago, when I worked as an associate for a small investment bank in New York, there was one particular managing director who commonly scheduled Friday morning meetings during the summer in Connecticut, not far from where he lived. I was often involved in these meetings, which meant I had to wake up rather early in my East Village apartment on those summer Friday mornings to get to Grand Central Station and take a Metro North train heading north, to Connecticut.

How Citi Bike Could Change Your Life at Work

There is a lot to dislike about Citi Bike, New York City's new bike-sharing system. First of all, there are five Citi logos plastered onto each Citi Bike. This means, once all 10,000 Citi Bikes are in circulation, there will be 50,000 new Citi logos clogging the streets of New York. Citi, which paid $41 million to fund the program, could very easily have put just one of its logos on each bike. Read More >

Can women have it all? Do women want it all? What do women have to sacrifice to have it all? If women could do it all over again, would they stay at home after having children? Stay at their jobs? Work less? More? Are working mothers happy with their employers? Ticked off at them? If so, why? And what can and should employers do differently to accommodate working mothers? Read More >
