They’re happier than they’ve been in years, according to the American Lawyer Associates Survey:
The rising satisfaction level among midlevels showed up in almost every facet of this year's edition of our annual 85-question survey. Fifty-seven percent of respondents, for instance, described their firms as appropriately staffed, a 7 percent increase from 2011. Seventy-nine percent described their workload as manageable, a 2 percent gain over last year. Ninety-two percent said that if they had the choice to make again, they would again choose to come to their firms, a 2 percent increase from a year ago.
The fact that they have jobs in these difficult times may have something to do with their satisfaction.
