    Pros

    Most attorneys were easy to work with, staff was great, work life balance was reasonable, decent benefits.

    Cons

    little in the way of bonuses or raises after recession, but that was pretty typical of law firms from what I can tell.

    Advice to Management

    none really.

    Interview

    The interview process is like any other for law students, however, they take you to happy hour afterward, and you, inevitably, let your guard down. The younger associates act like they're your friends, so you feel comfortable enough to ask certain questions or express concerns you might not have expressed with the hiring partner, which then gets you into trouble - for example, you may end up betraying that you don't really want to work at a firm long term, and end up ruining your chances of getting an offer. Don't forget - the happy hour is still part of the interview!
