The technology professionals were both talented and people I sincerely enjoyed working with on a daily basis.

I worked at Akin Gump full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Good pay, good management, willingness to buy tools required to complete projects.

Cons

As they got bigger and influence shifted from the DC and Texas offices to the NY office, I felt they put partner compensation above all else. Traditionally they had focused on development and appreciation of both staff and attorneys. Obviously, attracting and retaining the top attorneys is key to the success of any law form, but valuing staff is also important.
