I have been working at Clifford Chance US

Pros

Profit sharing - 401K - 28 days a year of vacation and personal time for business services - Nice people to work with

Cons

The layoffs were really hard on this company. There were so many business service people laid off who worked for the company for over 20 year that it seemed as with the lay off the soul of the company left too.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think management is doing there best to keep Clifford Chance as close to as Rogers and Wells use to be.

    I worked at Clifford Chance US full-time

    Pros

    - Lockstep compensation for associates, they always match NYC bonus structure
    - standard law firm benefits: subsidized gym memberships, cars and ~$30 dinners when you work late, great subsidized cafeteria
    - smart interesting associates with international outlook.

    Cons

    - partners seem like they hate each other, lack of cooperation and camaraderie at the top makes it difficult to see why you would want to stay
    - work life balance sucks, as does unpredictable nature of your schedule. welcome to every new york law firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - US partners put international deals (ones that originated at other CC offices) as lowest priority. That's clearly where the money is coming in, and it gets shuffled off to untrained associates who get berated by the european partners when they don't know what to do. Those cross-border deals should be get much more partner attention.
    - Partners should try to like each other, and like their work, or at least pretend. They clearly feel like second-fiddle to London, not as the US advance team for a global firm, and it shows, and attitude starts to trickle down to associates.
