    I have been working at Akin Gump full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment with good management. Great benefits and excellent training tools for any necessary jobs/tasks. Nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Rigid work schedule (not very flexible on hours). High stress environment. Nothing really else to say. Yes, you have to be able to meet deadlines and what-not, but heh, that's called having a JOB!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please news about the company flowing to the lower levels.
