Am Law's mid-level associates' survey


Some of the country's top-drawer law firms have been ranked as quality workplaces by the mid-level associates in The American Lawyer's mid-level associates' annual survey. The survey measures these associates' satisfaction from working for these top-notch law firms through a questionnaire. The survey posed an average of 11 questions that summarize the firm's qualities relating to workplace benefits like good compensation, collegiality, associates-partners relations, transparency of financial and other deals, billable hours requirements, mentoring, and retention. The rankings scores are based on a one-to-five scale, with five being the highest score. Responses from 7,172 third-, fourth- and fifth-year associates (law school classes of 2002, 2003, and 2004) were taken together to calculate the individual firm scores. The results were published in the August 2007 edition of The American Lawyer magazine.

Among the 164 law firms rated for associate job satisfaction, multipractice law firm Pepper Hamilton, LLP, was ranked ninth. In Pittsburgh, Pepper Hamilton stood first, taking the second place in Philadelphia, while overall the firm was placed third among the top 100 Am Law Firms. Allen & Overy has ranked 25th out of 164 firms, while its New York office took the seventh place out of the 88 surveyed.
