I have been working at Venable LLP
Pros – For a law firm its size, it has a higher than normal percentage of down to earth, good to work with people.
Cons – Very long partnership track. It is difficult to ascertain what you need to accomplish to advance. Compensation is mediocre for the market and the size of the firm.
Advice to Senior Management – Be more communicative with your associates. Try to create a legitimate and non-stigmatizing non-partnership track. There are plenty of very talented and hardworking attorneys who would be willing to work for a bit less than market if there are realistic and available flexible work arrangements that would permit some semblance of a work/life balance.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I worked at Venable LLP full-time for less than a year
Pros – Great opportunities for male lawyers.
Cons – Females seem to always be slighted despite the marketing team's efforts to make the firm seem equitable. Also not much racial diversity. Counting the custodial staff in various stats doesn't make the place more female or minority friendly for lawyers. Sure it's integrated if you want to wash the toilets. But with a law degree and student loans that may not be practicable.
