    Pros* Great work environment, team oriented, and employs individuals who truly care about one another both within and outside the work environment. Everyone is part of the Morgan Lewis family in a real sense.
    * Progressive firm that stays on top of the market and implements change when warranted but also values tradition and everything and everyone who helped them become a leading law firm.
    * Excellent compensation and benefits packages.

    Advice to Senior Management* Keep doing what you are doing. The inclusiveness and transparency you share with all of your employees is the reason why you maintain your status as a leading law firm.

    Overall an excellent place to work...

    Director (Current Employee) Phila, PA

    ProsGreat people to work with. Decent retirement benefits. The firm really values long term employment especially with staff positions. Excellent work-life balance and a collegial atmosphere.

    ConsHealthcare benefits for family plans are expensive for the employees. No formal tuition reimbursement plans are available. No profit sharing programs or formal bonus structures are available for staff positions unlike at some other large law firms.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdopt formal profit sharing and structured project bonus programs to encourage more of a performance based culture. Steps like this are especially important as big law comes under increasing pressure to compete for business in an increasingly competitive legal marketplace.

    Life at Morgan Lewis was good but did seem to change

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBenefits were good, i.e., Medical/Dental, 2 week bonus.

    ConsWorking for many different people through the years due to people leaving or moving or transferring.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen I started at Morgan back in 1996 there was a very different firm culture, it was known as a great firm to work at. I don't believe it is still the case.
