I worked at Cleary Gottlieb

Pros

The cases you get to work on are cutting-edge and extremely challenging. They generally are deals that come out in the press weeks after you allready got involved in the project and that is very rewarding. You actually are participating to some of the largest transactions goiong on in our economy. Your collegues are amongst some of the most intelligent and intersting people you will ever meet. This creates an excellent working environment. Your stay in the firm will be the best springboard to bounce into anything you wish afterwards.

Cons

The work load and the stress can get hard to manage.

    I have been working at Cleary Gottlieb full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    High quality work, great people, most humane biglaw firm in NYC and fabulous early opportunities for real responsibility.

    It is biglaw. Increasingly focused on cost-cutting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more love to the staff and associates. Nickel and diming is ridiculous given the hourly rates.
