    Pros

    Strong entrepreneurial culture that really allows the stars to shine in any area (attorney or staff). Extremely smart people on all sides makes problem solving very fun.

    Cons

    Long hours. We really need to have a work from home policy that would improve overall effectiveness and give us some work life balance..

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing the firm the way it is being done now and we will have 100 more years of success.

    Pros

    Kirkland has great development opportunities for legal support staff with a lot of perks you wouldn't receive elsewhere.

    Cons

    Pay is okay. However, since there are no other firms of relative size in the Chicago area, the firm has no wages to compete with.
