I worked at Wachtell Lipton
Pros – Wachtell Lipton is undoubted one of the most prestigious names in law. My time there led to other opportunities as well as a great work experience.
Cons – Most of the downside is the number of hours / volume of work there. My part time job had none of this, so there weren't many cons for me.
Advice to Senior Management – Keep doing what you're doing.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I worked at Wachtell Lipton full-time for more than a year
Pros – I worked there for a year as a floater legal secretary. There is good training in place and a pretty good support staff around you. The people who are there are generally very smart and accomplished. Some of the partners are fantastic people, generous and very human.
Cons – While about 80% of the people are great, the remaining 20% are nightmares. Neurotic, no empathy, no understanding of what their assistants do or the problems that exist in the firm on the technical side. These folks could care less about anything other than what they've got on their plate. They act entitled and expect to be served in a manner that befits the impression. (That's my opinion - I also suspect that some of these folks aren't happy in their lives, but that's just my impression.)
Advice to Senior Management – Let HR actually do the job of supporting the secretaries and support staff, not acting as managements' tool for punishment.
