    I have been working at Dorsey & Whitney (More than 10 years)


    Dorsey has a good culture and great people. It's a collegial place where doors are open and people are on a first-name basis. At Dorsey people are expected to do their best work for the firm's many high-caliber clients. The firm provides top-notch training and resources to attorneys and support staff.


    As with any professional services organization, client demands can negatively impact work/life balance at times.
