    I worked at Akin Gump

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are good and the work is top notch. You get to work on interesting projects and can earn a lot of responsibility.

    Cons

    The downsides are that of any big law firm. Long hours, little chance of making partner, no respect for home life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would try to pay more attention to alternative career paths. Partner is becoming increasingly difficult if not impossible to make so to keep good attorneys, make other options available.

    I have been working at Akin Gump

    Pros

    good work, talented workers and depending on what department you're in, fairly understanding superiors. generally a typical big law firm

    Cons

    stressful when busy because of fast pace, stressful when slow because of pressure to bill even if there isn't enough work, again, it's like most big law firms out there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    it would be nice to get feedback on work done and more flexibility to help with work life balance and stress.
