      I have been working at Allen & Overy part-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Positive attitudes all over, a fantastic team, lots of corporate events and benefits (HR does a terrific job!), good communication between the offices, new ideas are encouraged rather than suppressed, no internal business rivalry

      Cons

      High-pace working environment, which might cause commitment outside usual working hours

      Advice to Management

      Continue maintaining the entrepreneurial spirit!
