If you are offerd a position with Cleary, go for it!

Associate (Former Employee)

ProsThe 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.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease remeber waht it was like to a junior and give us some rest once in a while

    Pros: Good brand name, decent work hours, friendly (yet frustrated) younger… Cons: Tumultuous work environment, lack of interest from partners in leadership… Advice to Senior Management: Actually try to fix the problems within the department instead… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
