Pros

Great work life balance, supportive culture, constant learning is supported, work on high profile cases, plenty of help with grad school applications

Cons

Hours are occasionally unpredictable, and at the analyst level you sometimes may feel like your input into cases may be limited, but that's inevitable.

    Pros

    Employees at all levels are given substantial responsibility and opportunity for professional growth. The office culture is warm and collaborative. Travel is minimal, and the company is flexible with allowing employees to work from home or from other offices as needed.

    Cons

    Client-imposed deadlines sometimes lead to marked ups and downs in workflow over time. Can be difficult to maintain a steady work-life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    You work with smart, interesting people. The have a great, inclusive culture. There is a sense of flexibility around when/where you do your work that goes against the typical 'face time' workplaces. You get exposed to a variety of fields (Law, Academia, Business...) and are well set up for an array of grad schools. Great training.

    Cons

    The analysis can be mundane at times. You typically work on the defense side of litigation, so clients aren't always in the right. The analysis is always defensible, but it's sometimes in support of bad actors. If a deadline is near or an attorney team is demanding, hours can be long and unpredictable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the company is well run and self-reflective. The best professional culture I've ever been a part of. The highs and lows of workload are extreme, which could be improved upon but Cornerstone has limited control over this aspect.
