    This is not an easy place to work; but if you have a personality where things don't really bother you, it may be a fit.

    I worked at Kirkland & Ellis full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The money is great. Training is fantastic though it's hard to balance the time required to train with the time required to do your job (more than full time -- considerably so). Money goes up quite a bit each year and is lockstep, so it's guaranteed. Salary is above market.

    Cons

    Very long, very tough hours, with very demanding coworkers and managers. Everyone is your boss, even the secretaries and paralegals, which can be challenging. Partners are very hard driving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use contract attys more to give young associates a break.

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
