Associate Life Survey: Reviewing the Reviews

funny-pictures-fighting-cats-constructive-feedback.jpgOne of the more contentious issues in the legal profession this year is whether firms are conducting “stealth” layoffs, or simply culling non-performing associates after bad reviews.
Even among firms doling out these bad reviews, many say that performance standards have gotten tougher during the down market. Other firms, however, claim that their firms’ standards remain the same, and that the downsized departing associates simply didn’t measure up.
In today’s ATL / Lateral Link survey, we’ll focus a bit more on the review side of the equation. How often does your firm give real feedback, and do you think it’s actually fair?
Update: This survey is now closed. Click here for the results.
