I worked at McCarthy Tetrault full-time for more than a year
Pros – Large firm. Their training program is amazing. You don't have to waste time doing "small firm" tasks like photocopying, faxing...there is a department to do that for you. I.T. people are great. Always someone to assist. Work is very interesting. Get to work with great people. Great benefits (medical, dental, retirement)
Cons – Law Clerks don't get enough recognition. Female lawyers can be very catty with female clerks. We bill our time, but only get paid by the hour. The firm makes a lot of money off of us but we don't see it. If working on a large deal can be very long hours.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I worked at McCarthy Tetrault
Pros – good location
prestige of firm
good benefits package
some overtime opportunities
Cons – bad corporate atmosphere - elitist, cold and uncooperative management
low pay for assistants
no job security: mass lay-offs at the slightest economic downturn
Advice to Senior Management – change the corporate atmosphere from elitist to team-building and team-work
provide for perks and general respect for admin staff
