I worked at Orrick full-time

Pros

Market matching pay; high quality work; early responsibility; generally flexible hours (so long as the work gets done). They offer a non-partner track for associates who do not aspire to (or have the endurance to reach) partner -- its still unclear how long a career one could expect on that path.

Cons

Though flexible, the hours are many. Not specific to Orrick, but law firm culture/environment is a tough fit for most folks. Partner track is ~10 years.

    I worked at Orrick as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Interesting and challenging cases to work on, decent amount of support from team leads,exposure to various platforms, beautiful office

    Cons

    Blatant favoritism that lowers overall morale, low salary given the work being done

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since this is a primarily contract worker office (which while I understand is cost effective, it makes me scratch my head when it comes to a company like Orrick), hiring should be based on merit and not favorites of team leads or otherwise. I know many people have been working there for years in hopes of one day getting hired, but the jury's still out...
