    Pros

    You get to meet a variety of people with lots of experience. That you can get a great amount of help and advice.

    Cons

    You have to work hard and do well, and you have to love what you do.
    Otherwise, it might be really stressful working here.

    Pros

    I had an excellent mentor, and local leadership was very supportive when I took leave to care for my first child. Very strong community if you can tap into it.

    Cons

    I didn't feel like there was any investment made in me personally by the firm. I was useful, but only in the roles I made for myself; I wasn't given additional training or education (though perhaps it was a bit much to ask, being a junior administrative staffer).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lawyers are the lifeblood of the firm, but retaining talent in non-legal roles needs to be given higher priority.
