High quality and very prestigious law firm, amazing clients, great salaries/benefits, challenging work

Associate (Former Employee) Vienna (Austria)

ProsVery bright and ambitious colleagues around you. I received an amazing training. Annual practice group meetings at amazing places such as Saint Tropez where you can get to know your colleagues worldwide. I had a great partner who was both a very nice guy and brilliant. I had big clients and worked in cutting-edge legal issues. The work was legally challenging and I receied lots of responsibility from day one. Having Freshfields on your resume is a door opener. After, Freshfields I worked at another global law firm and I saw the difference. Freshfields is really about quality.

ConsLong hours. No solid workflow. Little chances to become partner.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep your European values alive. I very much appreciated the reaction of the crisis at least in Germany/Austria because no Associate had to go. Keep this spirit alive.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
