Growing Boston firm with much potential

Case Assistant (Current Employee) Boston, MA

ProsFantastic 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.

ConsIt'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 Senior ManagementKeep it up. The expansion and branding initiatives have been a big boost to employees.

    Too many insular, underexposed senior administrators from Boston

    (Former Employee)

    I worked at Goodwin Procter full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Great brand, great marketing organization, really really down-to-earth lawyers with common sense and commercial sense, very open-minded, technical… Cons: Functional heads of HR, Recruitment, IT, Payroll, Services, Training, etc are suspicious, narrow 'old guard' Bostonians who lack basic people skills, know nothing about operating… Advice to Senior Management: Think globally and demand that your functional administrators do -… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
