    I worked at Debevoise & Plimpton

    Pros

    The culture if very welcoming at least in the department I was working in. Its very comfortable and the supervisor I had was the best. Dealing with HR was a pain, the work was easy and environment supportive for learning new tasks. our department was like a little family.

    Cons

    long hours, and when they brought in an "efficiency expert" & changed management, it was no good. Enforced a stricter code of hours and changed work responsibilities. many people left since. Ive heard the rep of the firm is white shoe.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    only to HR of staff: they are cold, dismissive and not engaging with employees. one wants to go in there and get out as quick as possible. personality? none. attitude? lots.
