"Axiom Legal" is a temp agency masquerading as something new, so cool, and so different. But actually it's 10 times worse than any agency with the bullshit you have to put up with.
Axiom was started several years ago by a former Davis Polk associate who claimed to hate the legal business and who thought he could compete against them with "a new kind of firm". It was to be based in a loft office in Soho with all sorts of cool people. Like the Spiderman song, "Be yourself in a world that's crazy and cool". I'm soooooooooooooooooooooo Axiom!
Axiom said no more big law firm B.S. with the partners raking in big margins off associate work. They went to various big firm type clients like Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs to offer "the same service at a better price".
They then interviewed people, who had to fit their cool, mod-squad image. Any independent thinker or non-clone was definitely off-the-list. No they had to have a lot of artists and aspiring models.
Their key interviewer was Don Carlson, a smirk-face asshole from Harvard and Goldman. Kiss his prematurely bald-headed butt big time or you'll never get through the door!
Well lo and behold, Axiom brought in a private equity fund hedge fund to buy their shares a la Update.
While hyping themselves as something so trendy and insisting how they are not a temp agency, that's all they are, as they now gigglingly admit.
If you love kissing ass and love working in a Soho loft with a bunch of loser wannabes, then Axiom is the place for you!
