    I worked at Mintz Levin (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are undoubtedly mentors to be had at Mintz Levin. Seek them out. They truly care about your professional development.

    Cons

    If you do decide you don't want to go to law school it can be difficult at times to forge your own path. Again, lean on mentors for support.

    I worked at Mintz Levin (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Just a great company. Programs for employees, great benefits, and great location. I was an employee there for 4 years before moving. I hated to leave

    Cons

    I really don't have any cons to list. Again like I said a great law firm that took value in making the workplace great.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to continue doing what you are doing. Continue making the work place pleasant. Continue being great

    Pros

    Like any large firm, you'll gain great experience and training. There are a lot of great people at Mintz, but the few bad apples are the ones with power, so it makes it difficult for the other partners to protect associates from getting stretched too thin, especially in the corporate section.

    Cons

    Mintz used to be a great firm where people worked hard but still had a semblance of a life outside of the firm. With broad mid-level management changes over the last 2-3 years, they are trying to grind as much as possible out of associates until they quit. Over the last 2-3 years, the junior-mid level associate classes have been decimated. People never used to leave Mintz for another firm because for a firm, it was a great place to work, but this has changed. They want to be a New York firm with the bottom line as their number one goal, but they're not. People went to Mintz so they wouldn't have to be at a sweatshop, but new management doesn't get it. On top of all this, if they want to be a NY sweatshop, then they need to at least pay people like it. Bonuses used to be competitive, but have taken a dive, and the salary scale is not on par with other firms in the higher class years.

    Advice to Management

    Mintz used to be known in Boston as a great place to work, which helped recruit great associates and keep them. Grinding associates is shortsighted and may give a small bump in PPP this year, but will cost more in the long run. Work quality will suffer, costs of recruiting will go up, and client satisfaction will go down due to the revolving door of associates and lower work quality.

    Pros

    Mintz Levin is a great firm to work at. it is very entrepreneurial and team oriented.

    Cons

    There really isn't much to complain about. If you can even call it a CON, it is hard to get to know everyone because it is such a big firm.

    I have been working at Mintz Levin full-time

    Pros

    Mintz Levin is a collegial and family-friendly large Boston-based law firm. Mintz has offices in the UK, Israel, D.C., NYC, San Diego and San Francisco, but Boston is far and away the center of things. The firm is filled with top-notch lawyers from a wide range of disciplines. An excellent place to work.

    Cons

    Along with big firm life come all of the usual cons of working at any law firm - billable hours, difficult clients, etc. These issues are somewhat mitigated by the quality of the people.

    Advice to Management

    The management does a good job keeping associates informed and hold monthly meetings between associates and the managing partner (Bob Bodian). Keep this up. It's clearly good for morale.


  9. Good growth experience

    Pros

    Exposure to senior attorneys means you can mold your own experience. You get out of it what you put in.

    Cons

    Bad management of workflow, low morale.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to promote use of project analysts within firm

    I worked at Mintz Levin full-time

    Pros

    Can order dinner in if work late. Base pay compensation is on par with other large law firms. Large corporate clients allow for complex and interesting work.

    Cons

    Really a regional law firm with little national reach and almost no global presence. Limited training or mentoring for junior associates so do not feel as if the firm is investing in its associates...only churning out the work and hiring new associates when needed.

    Advice to Management

    Suggest investing more resources in the associates (both 1L and laterals) related to training, marketing efforts such as encouraging speaking and writing engagements, and mentoring.
