    I worked at Dewey & LeBoeuf full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I had an enjoyable, but short experience at Dewey. I was there for 6 months before it closed. The people were talented, kind, down-to-earth. Work/life balance was good; I was support staff. Also the hours, benefits and pay were good too.

    Cons

    It wasn't as creative as I would have liked.

    I worked at Dewey & LeBoeuf full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked with interesting, engaging people who seemed genuinely interested in me and my professional development. Aside from issues with crazy hours, I felt supported in every other respect.

    Cons

    Crazy hours. Didn't actually want to be a lawyer. Insurance department was a little insular. Very little done to smooth out workflow, which can result in anxiety and too many sleepless nights in a row when work piles up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More associates per project.

    Pros

    Wonderful company to work for. It was like you were part of a family business not just someplace you go do your 8 + hrs then go home, It was someplace you did not mind going to each day, even in bad weather.

    Cons

    The people that you work for years with and leave that you don't see them again and that the Company Closed Down after so many years, A very sad time.
