    Pros

    - Lots of opportunity for firm-sponsored activities outside of your normal job duties, including community service events
    - If you're not client-serving, work life balance is good
    - Everyone I've met is super nice :)

    Cons

    - If you're not client-serving, career advancement seems more nebulous
    - Technology (including basically everything on / about our laptops...) at the firm could use some improvement...
