    I have been working at Baker & McKenzie

    Pros

    Interesting assignments, stellar client list, friendly colleagues, competitive salaries and benefits, pleasant surroundings.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is a challenge with long hours and unpredictable work schedule. Lack of meaningful communication from management. Too many management layers for administrative staff positions results in overloaded staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaluate multiple management layers (global, regional, practice group, office) that often results in unclear direction and mixed messaging.
