Best in BigLaw

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Davis Polk

ProsMeritocracy, great experience on important cases, respectful workplace, very few "screamers" or otherwise inappropriate people. If you want to work in BigLaw, Davis Polk is the place.

ConsPassive-Aggressive Culture. People will smile in your face and then rip you to shreds. Otherwise the same cons that apply to BigLaw generally apply to Davis Polk--long hours, etc.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more transparent with employees about their performance and prospects at the firm.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
