I had a CB there a few weeks ago, and really liked the people I met/vibe of the office. Seemed much more laid back and down-to-earth than some of the other ATL firms. I waited a few extra days in the hopes I might hear something from them, but ultimately decided to take an offer elsewhere.


First, congrats on your offer and acceptance! BC ATL has not yet offered anyone that I know of (I know about 5 who had a CB at the ATL office) and some have had almost a month pass since their CB. I have heard of post-CB dings as well.

If you don't mind me asking, is the firm whose offer you accepted also located in ATL?


Just an FYI, I know of someone who just accepted an offer from BC. You might have not heard b/c the summer class is only 3-4 people this yr.


Good to know that the ball is rolling! Do you know what day they received an offer?

My only update that isn't reflected in the most recent list is an e-mail ding from SGR.


Post-screener or post-CB?


Post screener, but it took a while. I had no CB.


I got a post-CB ding at the end of last week if that's helpful info


Very helpful - thanks for sharing. Hope you find something even better.
How long from CB to ding in your experience?


Almost exactly a week. Good luck if you're still waiting to hear back!

Did the K&S summers enjoy their experience? How was it on a 1-10 scale?

Add-on question, no matter the firm, how was your Atlanta summer experience?

perhaps a new thread for this info would be useful, instead of flooding this general discussion thread with one year's OCI results...

Has anybody had any success in the lateral market from another big market (e.g. NYC/DC) to Atlanta early-career? And are certain practices better than others? M&A, Securities, Project Finance etc.

Has anyone been dinged from Nelson Mullins yet? I had a screener with them over a month ago, but it seems like they haven't even started giving callback interviews yet.

Any insight into ATL market raises and/or bonuses? I know it apparently varies by firm, but to what extent? Specifically for firms paying 150-155k first yr.

"150-155k"

Unless you want to enjoy the DLA Piper 160k starting rate.

... What?

Question is about bonuses and raises, not starting salaries.

Amlaw 100 firm, satellite office in Atlanta at the following scale:

150 155 160 165 175 185 190 195

Wondering if any similarly situated firms are this compressed?

Not sure if it's the same firm that you are referring to, but I'm 99% Bryan Cave ATL pays according to this scale.
