I have been working at Goodwin Procter full-time (More than a year)

Pros

I started at Goodwin Procter in an entry-level position. I received great training and have gained useful knowledge. Comparable positions at other firms often end up being full of mundane paper pushing, but I've definitely received substantive work and responsibilities at Goodwin. Good culture. The people here are great. Partners and associates do not look down on support staff.

Cons

Poor work life balance, as with most big law firms. Management has limited ability to help maintain reasonable workload for employees. First year associates seem to have poor/no training.

Advice to Management

Train associates better. The consequences of having poorly trained associates trickles down to support staff, making our jobs much more difficult.

    Pros

    The upper managment truly cares about everyone. People are genuine and caring. You do not need to walk around with armor to deflect the knives being thrown in your back.

    Cons

    Middle management is always changing and not for the better. For the most part you are treated as a responsible adult not a child who needs a scolding. Second and third chances are given for misdeeds.

    Advice to Management

    Don't stop caring and sharing. Things are improving in the moral department because you care and listen.

    Pros

    Up-to-date technology and training department. Great benefits. Good people.

    Washington, DC is an expensive city to be part of. Parking is expensive, but there is a good metro/subway and bus system.
