Pros

CGK provides excellent opportunities to work on very interesting technology law issues, along with related subject matter areas. It has a self-described "Cooley culture" that allows you to set your own work/life balance.

Cons

It can be a "who you know" not "what you know" kind of place at times. If you are not part of the inner circle, you may not get the good deals to work on or the opportunities for advancement that other may get.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to be a firm that focuses on the person rather than the bottom line and in so doing don't lose sight of each member of the Cooley team.

    Pros

    Mostly friendly people. Good work location.

    Cons

    No career advancement. You spend all day everyday doing menial work. No sense in going to college to work here. Management only cares about attorneys.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Utilize your paralegal's skills or continue to lose good people.
