I worked at Latham & Watkins full-time for more than 5 years
Pros – Goal was to create global law firm with small office environment
Cons – Lost that tight-knit family feel through growth of firm; too many management layers in organization.
Advice to Senior Management – Create avenues of growth for administrative and legal support staff. Shed the legal secretaries who are not carrying their weight, but "married" to their partners. Giving them raises/bonuses just because of who their partners are hurts morale of the best employees.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at Latham & Watkins
Pros – People are extremely sharp but are able to have a conversation about things other than work. Compensation and benefits are very competitive, so there is reward for the demanding work and hours. Senior attorneys are some of the best, so there are excellent examples to learn from.
Cons – People are too busy to stop and talk, whether it be casual or even shop talk. I think the informal mentoring that is helpful to building expertise and teams is minimal.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
