Perkins provides a good environment, but is unnecessarily and unreasonably focused on pedigree instead of potential.

ProsSalaries are higher than other contract legal employers. Colleges are generally considerate and focused on the tasks at hand. Associates and partners are some of the smartest people I've worked with.

ConsContract work can be inconsistent and the lead time for projects is short. There is little/no ability to move up and when people do advance it is more luck than skill.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I worked at Perkins Coie full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: Very proud of their "Best Places to Work" rating, do make efforts… Cons: Salaries are average, the scale of the enterprise had surprisingly little mobility, lots of hoops to jump through in order to get training or advance… Advice to Senior Management: Reorgs do not mean change - listen to those doing the grunt work at the bottom of the heirarchy and try to integrate their suggestions… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
