    I worked at K&L Gates LLP

    Pros

    Good salary, interesting work. How much you like your job depends a lot on which partners you work with. Good credit for bringing in clients.

    Cons

    Jerk partners. Tries to compete with big boys on salary but us cheap on benefits - people are still using CRT monitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest to the associates and don't try to be something you're not. Treat associates with respect. Try not to be a jerk.

    Former Employee - Summer Associate in Chicago, IL

    I worked at K&L Gates LLP

    Pros

    The pay is market rate, the facilities are top notch, and the people get along quite well and treat each other with respect.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of work to go around, and management is not good at keeping people informed about the status of the firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open and upfront to employees about what is going on with the firm. Keeping people in the dark only hurt them in the long run. Ignorance is not bliss.
