    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 Management

    Keep doing what you have been doing best.
