Pros

Young work environment. Good culture. Decent benefits packages. Offices in every major city. Recruits from good schools. Flat management structure.

Cons

Disparity in opportunity and compensation amongst practice areas. Lack of transparency. Bad sharing of knowledge between practice areas. Lack of teamwork at higher levels.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Firm management and some practice area management should be more closely regulated and managed. Training programs need to be improved. Collaboration with other firms must be encouraged and facilitated.

    Pros

    Competitive Salary, good experience gained from bad experiences.

    Cons

    Lots of Micromanaging, good employees are treated like crap, hardworking employees are rewarded with more work and less resources. Management shows favoritism when determining promotions and layoffs. Senior Managers seem to make a lot of bad decisions and mistakes and are very quick to point fingers at lower level employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs an intensive training on Leadership & Ethics

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Minimal bureaucracy and nimble, deep platform. Many dedicated and impressively competent employees. High quality client service. Great reputation within the law firm and in-house counsel communities. CEO and CFO are great at communicating with Wall Street.

    Cons

    Notable lack of ethnic diversity. CEO and president are incredibly dedicated and hard-working, and known for integrity and fairness, but lack substantive experience as consultants. Practice leaders are generally poor managers of people, and wholly lacking in leadership skills. Senior lateral hires are often among those who were perceived as most polarizing at prior firms, which makes it even harder to recruit senior laterals who are more partnerial and collaborative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) better signal succession plans; 2) replace practice leaders with those who are truly partnerial and collaborative; and 3) go private.
