    I have been working at Fenwick & West full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I feel valued and supported by my management and team. I am quite happy with my compensation and the work I am doing is exciting and challenging. The culture here is very diverse and very unique. I really think this may be the best place that I have ever worked and its definitely not my first. Fenwick is committed to using cutting edge technology and doesn't skimp on technology resources for its employees. Event our onsite datacenter is world class and leed platinum certified.

    Cons

    We get moved around a lot. I guess we are running out of space here..

    I worked at Fenwick & West full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The San Francisco office at least is in a lovely location, and the interior decoration is nice.

    Cons

    It's very stratified. Although attorneys depend on administrative staff, the two classes of employees are treated completely differently, not only in terms of respect but in the matter of what benefits each is eligible to receive. It makes it difficult to have a cohesive work culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You may have employees performing different functions, and of course the attorneys should be more highly compensated, but unless you can do without the administrative staff you should make it clear that they're valued. Solicit and listen to their opinions.
