I worked at Cooley Godward Kronish

Pros

If you are looking for a job to just do your thing and leave at 5pm, this place is for you.

Cons

As some others have said, this place does discriminate. After being told I was getting a promotion, twice, it was given to someone else. After the second time that happened, I left for better opportunities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop being an "all boys" club and let some women in.

    I worked at Cooley Godward Kronish full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary; they will just about hire anyone

    Cons

    No advancement; in order to work on the better matters, you need to really kiss up to the senior partners. The associates and non-exempt staff are treatly horribly. The firm is so cheap that you can't get a writing tablet or a box of pens to work with. However, the partners line their pockets with gold.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spread the wealth around and stop lining your pockets with gold. Gross misappropriate of funds in this firm.

    I worked at Cooley Godward Kronish full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers - salary is better because they pay more in trying to get people to stay

    Cons

    Management discriminates against their employees; no advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach and do not discriminate against employees. The firm offers no real advancement and if an employee makes any complaint, they will find themselves out the door - this firm discriminates against its employees as well. You would think being a law firm that they would follow the law and be more ethical but they are not. They are arrogant to the point that they believe they are above the law.
