    A kinder gentler NY office of a global firm

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    Prosgreat people in the Ny office. generous benefits and work life balance. great place for women to work.

    Consmanagement decisions driven by west coast that does not always get the NY market. leverage is off.

    Advice to Senior Managementdon't just talk the talk. walk the walk and gain the trust of your employees.

    Typical large law firm

    Associate Attorney (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsSmart, well-qualified attorneys; nice offices; good technology and benefits on par with similar size law firms. Well known among law firms.

    ConsLarge firm so you can get siloed in your specialty area of practice with little interaction with others outside your group. pressure to produce hours and develop clients as in any firm.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote personal growth and balance of professional and personal life of attorneys to reduce burn-out.

    As with all big law firms, your experience in large part depends on the partner you work with.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSmart people. Generally less driven than many other big law firms.

    ConsWhatever cons exist are not unique to Pillsbury, just a problem with big law in general - long and unpredictable hours, the expectation that you are always available.

    Not a bad place to work

    Technical Specialist (Current Employee)

    ProsThe money is good. Some variety, at least in my job, and quite the view at the new office.

    ConsAttorneys have extreme pressure from the partners, they in turn pressure their staff. It's an up or out job. Staff, you get a job there, rest assured that you will most likely do that very job for life. While this may appeal to some, it does not appeal to the ones with ambition, so Pillsbury just isn't for you. The chance to grow professionally just isn't there and staff management will favor outside hires to internal promotions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementValue your people! Without them you don't have a business!
