    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 Management

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

    Work here if you want management/attorneys giving you dog treats for doing a good job and cursing you out weekly.

    Pros

    Free coffee in the break room! Plus you get the second set of left overs from upper management meetings.

    Cons

    Small pay, bad management, no promotions, verbal abuse, hostile work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management and humans resources need to enforce policies on ethical behavior instead of paying people off to keep their mouths shut.
