    Pros

    For the most part everyone is treated respectfully and professionally. Great support services (tech support, legal assistants, secretaries, etc.).

    Cons

    Certain mid level associates have a bad reputation for treating junior associates in a demeaning way. These are typically mid levels that transfer to DPW from another firm and so are used to a screamer culture. Partners and management need to step up and actively send a message that this type of attitude is not the DPW way

    I have been working at Davis Polk full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The people are great. Everyone is exceptionally smart and dedicated to their work. Some might see big law firms as being terrifying places where everyone is out to make a buck and move up the ladder and, although that may be some peoples intention, everyone is a team-player and wonderful to work with.

    Cons

    I find that the firm's ability to train its' staff and incoming interns, associates, employees, etc on the technical programs and procedures of the company--which can be stifling.
