    I have been working at Proskauer Rose part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great hours, great work life balance, excellent co-workers

    Cons

    Management can tend to micro-manage a bit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ease up on staff as most, if not all, are extremely professional and take pride in their work.

    I worked at Proskauer Rose

    Pros

    location, salary, there is not much else

    Cons

    There is no work-life balance, you must be available 24/7. Time off is non-existent. Company values... HA! It is OK to be harassed, especially if you are a woman!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advise to mgmt.... they don't listen. The answer is "leave if you don't like it here"

    I have been working at Proskauer Rose full-time

    Pros

    Culture, collegiality, great work, brilliant lawyers. There is excellent in-house training that can help you start your legal career on a solid foundation. I feel the firm really goes out of its way to support associates and make them feel appreciated. The quality of work is also fantastic, great clients to work for. Very prestigious.

    Cons

    Like most AmLaw 100 firms, the hours can be long at times, but all worth it!

    Pros

    Smart people, great staff, brilliant partners

    Cons

    very long hours, expected to be available 24/7. basically same pros/cons of lots of other law firms. whether they care about about personal life depends on who you are working for. your entire work experience really depends on who you are working for. someone working for one partner on one case could have an entirely different experience than another partner on another case.

    Former Employee - Senior Desktop Support Engineer in New York, NY

    I worked at Proskauer Rose full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They used to have excellent management for their various IT groups. One in particular (WQ) was brilliant, and held the place together because of his extensive knowledge.

    Cons

    They brought in some new management who micro-managed. That takes people's focus from their tasks, to watching over their shoulders, and never is a good thing for the firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find people who respect their subordinates, and nurture, or coach, for better performance. Treat employees with kindness.
    You can manage by fear, by love, and by respect. If you manage by fear, you will never get the other two and those two - love and respect - are what makes a department run smoothly.
