    I worked at Orrick

    Pros

    it paid well, it had decent benefits, it had many nice and decent people to work with, and there was almost always a way to make extra money working over time.

    Cons

    it did not have up to date hardware or software, it was hard to get equipment or other items when required, there was a lack of appreciation of the paralegal support staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a more merit based award system, treat the staff with more respect, balance work loads better, stop micromanagement and improve technology tools.

    I worked at Orrick

    Pros

    Orrick culture is very friendly and informal for a law firm. Everyone tends to maintain a sense of humor even in difficult situations. The senior attorneys are approachable and take time to talk to staff. They make deliberate efforts to involve junior staff and are willing to give you opportunities you may not get at other big firms. If you are very ambitious, there is room for growth.

    Cons

    The pace is exacting. Expect to work your ass off. Senior employees work very hard and you will be expected to match them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More options for work/life balance. It's an all or nothing proposition.
