Pros

Benefits are great. My assignments are great to work with. My coworkers are also great.

Cons

Management doesn't listen. There is too much bureacracy and management needs to listen to "staff" needs, and not just "lawyers."

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Good benefits and Orrick contributes a good percentage to your 401k every year.

    Cons

    The culture is one that only caters to the partners and attorneys. The staff are on the lowest tier and do not get the best treatment. There is a clear divide amongst the different levels of partners, attorneys and staff. There is not a lot of mingling between attorneys and staff and not the most welcoming place to work. Also, Orrick promotes work/life balance but that does not apply to the staff, only attorneys.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice if the upper management took more interest in the staff and were more appreciative of them. Paralegals are money makers for the firm because we bill and account our hours in the same way as the attorneys, but we are not treated as nicely.
