    I have been working at Baker & McKenzie

    Pros

    Endless opportunities; Partners & Associates go above the call of duty to help one another to the extent the firm worldwide eludes an atmosphere of family and close friends working relentlessly for our clients; the breadth and value of the continuing education seminars; the opportunities to pursue and propose legal cutting-edge approaches and creative initiatives for the benefit of the firm; great travel and placement opportunities

    Cons

    not all offices subscribe to WestLaw and/or other very valuable non-legal research databases; difficult to diversify and expand your social life due to long hours; "on-call" 24/7 for client matters; not all offices offer free or discounted memberships to recreational facilities for professional staff near the workplace

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
