A good way to tell the state of the current economic situation within a certain market is to find out whether staff / partners / associates received bonuses or not. This will tell us that either things have started turning, or that things are still very gloomy – or at the very least it will tell us what the managing partners of law firms think about the current state of affairs.
I think the results will be very interesting! If things are gloomy, you stay put and don’t put a foot wrong. If things are good, and everybody seems to have received a bonus, but you didn’t, then maybe it is time to start looking around! This poll is completely anonymous, and will take two clicks. The poll is just under the login section on the top left of the home page.
