    Pros

    - nice office
    - good benefits
    - freedom to work on projects
    - good team of people in own group/department (but fairly isolated from rest)

    Cons

    - lack of help and response from HR department
    - decisions take a long time to be made due to bureaucracy
    - upper management favours the lawyers (other positions are not important)
    - do not believe in paying more than competitors in order to keep their employees

    Advice to Management

    Be more competitive in pay in order to attract and keep high performing employees.
    Be more fair with non-lawyer positions. They are important too and should be treated with the same respect.
    Be more responsive to employees' inquiries.
    Actually implement the "one team, one vision" motto.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Gowlings Lafleur Henderson (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in August 2012.

    Interview

    The interview and hiring process was very seamless and efficient. I had two interviews, spanned over 3 weeks and received an offer shortly after my second interview. The interviews were mostly work history questions, with a few behavioral questions. My first interview was with HR and the hiring manager, and my second interview was with the hiring manager and CMO of the company.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They were very open to negotiations on the contract, and the process of finalization was very fast.
