    I worked at Kutak Rock

    Pros

    There are some nice, interesting people. It is a national law firm, so you will gain experience in a number of fields. There are, theoretically, options available if you want to transfer to another office (although I never knew anyone who did this, so I do not know how difficult the process is). Kutak does train new employees on all of their systems, which I'm discovering can be an unusual quality in an office environment. The DC office is small, so you do not feel like you are lost in a giant corporate firm, and you will at least know the names of everyone who works there.

    Cons

    It's a fairly typical law firm atmosphere, and there are a lot of egos and a lot of tempers. Staff-level employees must pay for their benefits, which has not been the case anywhere else I have worked. Some departments have significantly higher workloads than others. On a similar note, if you do not like cross-training and filling in for others, Kutak's DC office is not the place for you (although I found working in other departments to be very interesting). Staff turnover is very high, particularly for the size of office and the type of work. Some people are "lifers," but particularly the younger staff seem to be on the revolving door track.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management is often ineffective and aloof. They should be more engaged with all levels of employees and more willing to be flexible. The high rate of staff turnover should be an indication that there are problems in management, but no one in Omaha (the head office) seems to pay attention to this detail. For all its faults, management is generally accessible, even if the solutions to various problems prove to be pointless wastes of time.
