Associate Life Survey: Happy Thanksgiving?

funny-pictures-kitten-has-a-happy.jpgOn this, the day before Thanksgiving, our ATL / Lateral Link survey ponders just how many of you are actually giving thanks.

Back in April, we reported that many (but not most) associates were in decent spirits:

  * 25.8% of respondents said their morale was “good.”

  * 11.5% said their morale was “great.”

  * And 3.3% of respondents thought their morale “couldn’t be better.”

But those were relatively light-hearted days, when Bear Stearns had only just collapsed, and Heller Ehrman and Thelen were still looking forward to their respective 119th and 85th birthdays.

Now that AIG and Merrill Lynch and Lehman Brothers have fallen, and various layoffs have unfolded, and a sobering half-Skadden bonus structure has spread to STB, how are you feeling today?

Justin Bernold is a Director at Lateral Link, the sponsor of this Associate Life Survey.
