    I have been working at Wilson Sonsini full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Intelligent and hard-working colleagues. Very professional. Can get a lot of lead roles, if you're willing to take the initiative. No office can be free of politics, but most people weren't there to gossip. They were there to do good work.

    Cons

    Not very social. Even the secretaries aren't social. Some partners work weird hours, e.g., to be home with the kids. Then after the kids' bed time, they go back to work -- and expect the associate team to be on the same schedule. Many associates are at a different life stage -- that means, a husband or boyfriend, with no kids. Work-life balance can be difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better work-life balance, please, and recognize different people have different schedules.
