Pros

You are working with the best and the brightest attorneys on high profile domestic and international cases. The firm supports traveling to other offices and encourages attorneys to work for extended periods abroad in another Freshfields' office.

Cons

As with any other law firm, the hours can be tough and the stress level high.

    Pros

    20 Vacation days, 2 float days, 6 sick days
    Health Care paid for by the firm
    Great New Offices at 601 Lexington

    Firm pays 1/3 of your yearly gym membership (support staff only)

    Cons

    Poor Pay Rises (so negotiate a good rate when you start)
    Poor Bonuses (not paid on performance paid equally across the firm)
    No real annual appraisal process

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide support staff with a good carreer path and more of an opportunity to grow
