Small is beautiful, according to the more than 7,300 respondents to our Summer Associates Survey. Though the summers liked big firms, their evaluations show they liked life at small to midsize firms better. Students craved juicy assignments, friendly offices and lots of attention, and the firms that best met these needs tended to be medium-size, with smaller summer programs. Whether big or small, firms that did well in the survey focused on training, mentoring and involving summers in exciting projects.
