Current Attorney in Chicago, Illinois

Very comprehensive benefits package. Great health insurance, dental, and vision. Easy to use and navigate options. HR does a really nice job of explaining everything to you.

401k, benefits, lots of good perks, maternity and paternity leave, discounts, vacation time is okay if you meet your billable hour requirements.

Great benefits and leave, but best parts start after one full year: 23 days scheduled plus 6 unscheduled PTO after first full year. 4% firm salary contribution (not match) to 401K after first full year (so none the first year besides employee contribution) and then additional 4% after the 2nd full year (so total 8%).

One of the best benefits I’ve seen in terms of vacation/paid time off. Healthcare is a little expensive but I’m not educated on what most companies out there offer. Non exempt employees receive overtime after 35 hours which is a huge plus.

Former Associate in New York, New York State

Having worked at other law firms since leaving Skadden, I can say the firm's benefits package was a fairly good one. My costs increased at other firms and the benefits weren't nearly as good.

Great benefits and HR Staff.

Generous time off policy. 401K matching if you stay long enough. Gym discounts. Discounts on technology and various retailers. Gym in the building is only for attorneys though, not support staff.
