    Exposure to important cases and clients; steep learning curve.

    Lack of appreciation at times and competitiveness among colleagues where it was common place to take credit for other work.

    Not to allow middle management to take so much credit for the work done by other staff.

    Pros

    Working with both an associate and a senior associate means you are well supported and that if you have any issues, they are on hand to help.
    Good location.
    High quality of work.
    Early responsibility- I even had some of my work incorporated into the final advice given to a client.

    Cons

    Some employees were not particularly helpful and a little cold.
    The building is quite confusing and relatively difficult to navigate.
