    Pros

    If I had say something good, you'd have to torture me to say it, because I can't think of one pro.

    Cons

    This place is the worst firm I've worked for in my 25+ year career in the legal field. I suppose it has a lot to do with who you work for, but the firm itself is just awful. They really don't value their staff at all. Also, their technology is behind the times with inferior software and hardware. They want to do everything on the cheap. Their macro pac had to have been written by a trained monkey because it is a joke. The features didn't work. And, the attorneys were a bunch of cry babies. I've never worked anywhere where the attorneys were so unprofessional and immature. Couldn't wait to get out of the place. If you're thinking about a job here, run, run, run as fast as you can away from this firm. You'll be glad you did.

    What's the point? Management never listens.

    I worked at Wilson Elser full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity to gain real-world experience (at least if you are in the products liability group). From client interaction to pleadings to depositions to trials and arbitrations. Excellent starting point.

    Cons

    Excellent starting point. Challenges and opportunities are not are great if you are not in the products liability group. Few newcomers have intention to stay long term--tough culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Associates generally are not made to feel as if they are a part of the firm's success.
