Good mid-market firm; "Frat" culture

I worked at Akin Gump (Less than a year)

Pros

Good opportunities for young associates, very diverse set of practice areas and realistic partnership prospects. DC office is great and very friendly.

Cons

Work not top-shelf (though still very strong), bonuses are generally not as good as other firms. Office culture varies greatly by location.

    I have been working at Akin Gump full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The salary is probably the best thing about the firm.

    Cons

    Everything else; it's biglaw, and is probably no worse than any biglaw firm. But overall it is not a positive environment in which to grow as an attorney.
