    I worked at Irell & Manella full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    This is a law firm with a winning formula in handling IP litigation, and an admirable pro bono mindset.

    Cons

    They are big enough where any exceptional talent in the executive staff is overlooked until after one leaves the firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not appropriate.

    I have been working at Irell & Manella full-time

    Pros

    Great experience, wonderful coworkers, and an all-around really collegial environment. People are really supportive and cooperative, and even partners really are there are for you and take a vested interest in your development. Not many places that can truly say that, or give you the kind of substantive experience you get here from day 1.

    Cons

    Very long hours sometimes, unpredictable schedule, but this is true of any big law firm, so really not an Irell-specific problem.
