A firm with a great reputation full of smart and talented people.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

ProsDWT is one of the few large law firms where it is possible to maintain work life balance. If salary is the most important factor, you can probably get a higher salary somewhere else. However, DWT's billable hour requirements are slightly lower than other firms, so you might actually get home at night in time to see your family. There are good opportunities to work on interesting deals, and this firm is full of smart, talented, and interesting people with diverse backgrounds and interests. They also encourage pro bono participation by giving billable hour credit. A large number of attorneys and staff are active in community projects, fundraising for non-profits, and pro bono legal projects.

ConsAttorneys are not good managers here or in any other law firm where I have worked. For example, some associates receive a lot of good mentor ship, some do not, and no one really takes any responsibility for this. Despite its size and efforts to "Define Success Together," it sill has the feeling of a firm full of sole practitioners each doing their own thing. Also, they have been slow to keep up with technology. They need to invest more in this infrastructure to stay competitive.
