Pros

-The people are smart and motivated
-The socialization/networking opportunities are endless
-Prestigious firm with an excellent culture
-Great experience overall

Cons

-very bureaucratic. As an employee on the administrative end of the company, it was difficult to explore new (professional) opportunities outside of my job function.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think creatively about how to utilize administrative staff. The people are just as smart and motivated as the attorneys and would thrive if given more diverse professional opportunities. This does not apply to personal opportunities, which are endless.

    Pros

    Great colleagues. Wicked smart people. Highly ethical. No "bush league" behaviour. Good work and opportunities. It's a great way for a young attorney to build their skills and network.

    Cons

    Work life balance is difficult once you have children. The "ethos" has changed towards metrics and productivity and away from collegiality and good work. It's now a factory headed towards a sweat shop, and it used to be a real Washington regulatory boutique. They basically moved all moms and part time lawyers out--contrary to their stated policies and contrary to their historical ethos. It's now become all about the numbers and less about the individuals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think its sad when the law firm is so big that the only thing all the partners can agree upon is that they should all be making more money. Life isn't about PPP and yet that appears to be what the focus is all about these days.
