I worked at Freshfields

Pros

People working there, from partners to all levels of support staff, are all amicable and willing to help each other. Work environment and biscuits in the pantry are excellent.

Cons

At this very competitive IPO and M&A powerhouse, lawyers tend to work very hard so in busy times people are expected to accept long hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you have been doing best.
