    I have been working at Latham & Watkins full-time

    Pros

    High profile deals, exposure to sophisticated matters and clients, great perks, market rate salary, easy to work remotely. Very social and nice people as far as law firms go.

    Cons

    You are always on call, very long hours, unpredictable schedule. Your weekends and holidays are not yours. Your soul may be occasionally/frequently crushed. This is true at all law firms though, as far as I can tell. Also, depending on your group, training may be hard to come by.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your juniors, make associates feel valued.
