Pros

The firm has a great reputation. They provide attorneys with excellent resources. Good facilities. Many very nice people. Some of the partners are extremely well-respected around the country and are tops in their fields.

Cons

It's still Big Law. Although not as bad as some firms, there's still a cut-throat attitude sometimes. And, of course, there's a tremendous emphasis on billable hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate more with associates. Emphasize quality more over the quantity of billable hours. Pay more attention to good writing. And get into at least the mod-2000s technologically.

    Pros

    The environment is enriching to anyone seeking to gain a sense of what is expected within the legal profession. Everyone is more than willing to help you along the way.

    Cons

    For some the environment can be deemed as a little conservative, but this should be expected within one of the largest corporate firms in Texas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be to create a more engaged system of communication among the employees, creating a greater sense of interaction can only enhance an already amazing experience.

    Pros

    Great vacation and benefits and a lot of flexibility to work autonomously for the most part. The people working there are also very nice and genuine.

    Cons

    A few attorneys can become a little egotistical at times, but otherwise most people are quite nice. Some more career development would be nice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If upper management were to put more effort into training staff and having a more concrete career path for them, it would be very beneficial for the company.
