    Pros

    Good compensation; Good contacts with client companies for your in-house job after Cooley; some excellent partners, especially the most senior partners in the firm; many smart associates; excellent locations and ability to switch offices if needed; some lawyers in other departments are terrifically helpful

    Cons

    Partnership chances are minimal; despite supposed emphasis on training, seemed to lack sustained training for associates or partners, with no emphasis on attending outside seminars if no CLE requirement in your state; younger partners in management seem more focused on hanging out with their buddies in the various offices than connecting with other partners or associates; the usual office politics

    Advice to Management

    Better and ongoing training of attorneys at all levels. Younger partners in management need to learn from the senior partners.


  2. Its probably not better or worse than anywhere of comparable prestige in the area.
