Midlevel associates in Big Law are as happy as ever. It seems the only thing that could make them happier is a peek behind the curtain.

Associates in their third, fourth and fifth years gave an average composite score of 4.27 out of 5 on our annual Midlevel Associates Survey, a slight increase from 4.26 in 2017. That number has been on the rise for several years, though gains were incremental this year and last.

More than 5,000 associates from Am Law 200 and Global 100 firms completed this year’s survey. Associates gave scores of 1 to 5 in a dozen categories, and more than half of the category averages remained unchanged from 2017 to 2018. Midlevels continue to find their work interesting and satisfying, with average scores of 4.47 and 4.37 in those categories. And asked to score their workplace overall, they gave an average score of 4.37.
