Pros

Highly professional and brilliant lawyers across the board. Don't think you'll find any other law firm with a deeper bench and that will give associates as much responsibility so early in their careers.

Cons

The hours can be long and communication about partnership prospects can be opaque.

    Pros

    Meritocracy, 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.

    Cons

    Passive-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 Management

    Be more transparent with employees about their performance and prospects at the firm.
