    Pros

    The brand name and the clientele. Exposure is great.

    Cons

    No work life balance at all. Most of the seniors treat you, like you don't exit at all. No perks or anything to make the employees happy. No forum to seek redressal. Nobody to go to in case the employee is in trouble. One has to kill himself but has to get the work done.

    Pros

    Get a chance to work on good deals, exposure to different sectors, good firm values, good name to have on your resume. Will train you to pay attention to detail. Openly appreciates good work. Young peer group, you will make friends along the way. A good system of knowledge management and continuing legal education is in place.

    Cons

    Not very professional, decision making not transparent. You have to stick around for a while and perform before good work comes your way. Salaries are not competitive, promotions are slow and not based on merit. You have to be mentally tough to face the unhealthy competition.

    The place is competitive, good environment and friendly people. One need to work hard to leave an impression.
