Pros

Great place to work. The pay is very competitive and the culture has lots of autonomy. It is a very paced environment but I find that very challenging. Firm is experiencing rapid growth that is very exciting as well. Lots of fun firm team building events.

Cons

Long hours for associates, but better than many other law firms. Place more emphasis on support functions (Accounting, IT, HR) and the value that they add to the organization.

Advice to Management

Better communication.
