    Ambitious mid tier firm with friendly atmosphere

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros"Friendly" atmosphere and better work/life balance when compared to other firms. Some teams are highly regarded in the market. Good employee benefits.

    ConsFocus on being a "European" firm means that it automatically falls short when compared to competitors with a global or transatlantic presence. Global deals and exposure are therefore not are prevalent at CMS.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOutlook should be more global if the firm wants to compete with the bigger players in the market.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Friendly firm with good working culture and well organised summer vacation scheme

    Summer Associate (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsWhile still a quite a large firm, the culture remains quite personal and it doesn't really have that 'small cog in a big wheel' feel. Energy team has top class work if that's where your interests lie

    ConsWhile a big player in certain areas like energy, the firm lags behind the magic/silver circle heavyweights when it comes to other areas

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    nice friendly atmosphere

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Budapest (Hungary)

    ProsNice, friendly atmosphere, good international relationships, good files, valuable know how

    Conssalary, promotions, benefits are not tailored to ones contribution, low benefits, no bonus, long working hours

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf found outstanding lawyer being loyal and contributing a lot to the growth of the office, it is advisable to appreciate this devotion and treat this lawyer a bit differently and not to say all the time everybody gets the same salary raise, same bonus etc - it is defined by HQ
