    I worked at MinterEllison full-time

    Pros

    - Despite being a top-tier, down-to-earth people who don't take themselves too seriously
    - Partners who genuinely care about the wellbeing of their teams
    - Ability to learn from some of the best and smartest lawyers in the country
    - Intellectually stimulating and challenging
    - Salaries starting to become more competitive
    - Genuine overseas work opportunities

    Cons

    - Long hours (like any law firm)
    - Bonus system doesn't always work (if you're the victim of write-offs out of your control)
    - While partners do genuinely care about the wellbeing of their teams, the work still needs to get done. So while they're still being grateful and appreciative, they're not exactly going to say "please don't sacrifice your night/weekend to get that done", rather they'll say "thank you for sacrificing your weekend to get that done, I really appreciate it".

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Very casual and friendly - they're looking for a good culture fit.

    Just asked the usual questions, ie. Why you'd like the role, what experience makes you a good fit for the position.

    One negative - even if your interviewer says you're good to go / have the job, it can take a while for things to be officialised through HR.
