    Pros

    This firm still believes in the generalist model. allowing junior attorneys to develop the so very important broad experience necessary to be an excellent lawyer overall and to avoid blinders when one specializes.

    Cons

    As is customary in Big Law the work-life balance is not good. In recent years the above Pro (quality broad based training) may be suffering, in particular in the smaller offices, as the lack of senior associate and junior partners to train junior attorneys becomes apparent from layoffs in 2009 that resulted from the 2008 financial crisis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember how important it is to have a pipeline of talent to sustainability of the Firm, and service the clients (in particular the institutionalized clients).
