Midlevel Associate Survey


A look at the satisfaction levels of third-, fourth- and fifth-year associates at Am Law 200 firms.

For a firm to be included in the National Rankings chart, we must receive ten or more completed surveys from associates with the firm. A firm’s national score is the average of 12 questions on the survey that summarize the firm’s qualities, including the interest and satisfaction levels of work; benefits and compensation; relations between associates and partners; training and guidance; management’s openness about firm strategies and partnership chances; the firm’s attitude toward pro bono work; billable hours policy; and the likelihood of the associate being at the firm in two years.

A firm must have at least five completed surveys in an office to receive a city ranking. The same 12 questions are calculated for individual cities or markets to determine branch scores and rankings.
