    I worked at Bingham McCutchen

    Pros

    The lawyers I worked with are uniformly excellent teachers and mentors who really care that you understand what you do. It was a great learning experience.

    Cons

    Lawyers are by nature not great managers. Bingham is no exception. I do think that more effort can be put into thinking about managing associate careers and managing the day to day practice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more emphasis on real talk. Associates are not here to stay forever. Recognize that fact and have a conversation with associates about what they're thinking and what is expected.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
