I have been working at Goodwin Procter

Pros

Fantastic people/culture with a good balance between work and personal time. There is also a vibrant social life in the office which is greatly facilitated by the lack of snooty and otherwise holier-than-thou attorneys which can be fairly commonplace in large corporate firms. The Real Estate practice is very highly regarded and the firm is expanding at an extraordinary pace.

Cons

It's Boston so the compensation levels are not the same as New York and the extent to which you're likely to pick up huge multinational clients with complex legal needs, while possible, is substantially decreased. This is offset, however, by smaller startups from the BioTech and Life Science mecca of Cambridge if you are interested in that area of law.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep it up. The expansion and branding initiatives have been a big boost to employees.

    I worked at Goodwin Procter full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good talented, caring people on the administrative side

    Cons

    Every individual is disposable. No regard for longetivity. Easy to pass the buck mentality. No communication and no direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ineffective and basically bad management within several areas led to "reduction" in jobs for many productve, caring individuals. It is difficult to ascertain how a firm of this standing allows inexperienced, low producing managers to dismiss others but they are still gainfully employed.
