    I worked at Akin Gump full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great pay, easy to find work within the fast-growing sections, lots of autonomy and respect among lawyers, and great location within D.C. The usual perks of being at a large law firm, with a bit more tech-savvy crop of yound partner than you'd expect.

    Cons

    Easy to get pigeonholed if you're not careful with your development; Lots of work-related travel and, like most biglaw, no work-life balance; High-level management tends to be great but lower level management can sometimes get in the way of getting interesting work; Some high attrition within certain groups, especially where management and clients can be quite difficult

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider how to keep people from leaving the firm by preventing them from getting stuck working for the same client or partner; better orientation and training within the section would be great
