Orrick is an innovative firm, and the people who work there are collegial. Most are very respectful of one another. It's a friendly environment where employee opinions matter. Work/life balance. Women and LBGT Community awareness and focus. Pro Bono and Community Volunteer activities. Associate and staff salaries are competitive. Alternative Work Arrangements and flexible work schedules available for many positions. Business casual dress with jeans on Fridays, year-end and other times throughout the year. Fun activities and events. Hot breakfast once a month.
Culture shift from California (casual, comrade) to New York (business, bottom-line ) frame of mind. All decisions must be approved by decision-makers instead of allowing competent personnel to make daily decisions. Skewed staff compensation model in Wheeling. Some get paid very well and others get paid below market. Some positions have limited growth potential, but it is similar to other employers.
