Pros

The people are fantastic. Everyone is kind and friendly, and even the most important partners take an interest in the associates. We also have really great tech clients and we are involved in some of the largest deals in the silicon valley.

Cons

Like every big law firm, the hours are very long, and you are "on-call" all the time. Since we are on number of clients/deals at any particular time, there is a lot of juggling involved.

    Pros

    Interesting and unobjectionable clients.
    Creativity and client service are valued over sheer quantity of hours worked.
    Employer's attention to professional development, diversity, and need for life outside of work.

    Cons

    Like any firm this size, there are occasionally very busy periods that demand a lot of accommodation from employees' families.
