    I have been working at Foley & Lardner full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Friendly and supportive people, lower billables than other large law firms, great support staff, casework is interesting generally though you may not get as huge of clients, good work life balance for a law firm

    Cons

    Lower salary than other large law firms, it's still a big law firm and you are will required to work long sometimes inconsistent or unexpected hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Attorney turnover is high at all big law firms, what are you doing differently to make Foley a place that young attorneys want to stay at for life?

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Foley & Lardner in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Position was recommended by recruiter. First interview was with immediate supervisor that explained the role. Had to show willingness to learn new things. Then interviewed with office administrator, who mostly talked about benefits. Then interviewed with Docketing Director, mostly to get a feel of the role and what they expect.
