    Pros

    Good opportunities to work on significant litigation that affects the market. Excellent associate training program, including for summer associates. Prepares associates for litigation holistically.

    Cons

    RKMC doesn't have as large of a national presence as some other firms, which can be a challenge. Some of the large clients really influence the work process, also a challlenge.

    Exceptional Firm - rare amongst big firms

    I worked at Robins Kaplan Miller & Ciresi full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people are fantastic. The firm culture is one of inclusion. Training is second-to-none. The firm invests a ton of resources into training its associates. If you are proactive and eager to learn, you will have a ton of opportunities. But they won't just be handed to you. You have to demonstrate that you want them and are willing to work for them.

    Cons

    It's a big firm. The usually things that come with that. Getting hands-on trial experience, working on massive cases with 20 other lawyers, etc., but that is the exception rather than the rule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focusing on developing the up and coming talent.

    Pay, flexibility. The people were always very helpful and excellent to work with.

    There are no cons to working here. However, you are expected to adhere to a more strict dress code (i.e. wear a suit everyday).
