    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Cleary Gottlieb full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Really fun events - Lots of flexibility to work with practice groups - awesome international options

    Cons

    - Wish I could have gone more in-depth for some projects - felt like I didn't get to know my whole summer class with people coming/going all the time

    Advice to Management

    Focus on a way to lengthen the time the entire summer class is together and engaged in doing things.

    I have been working at Cleary Gottlieb

    Pros

    Awesome, collegial co-workers. Great office space. Flexible work assignments.

    Cons

    Large summer class makes it easy to get lost in the weeds.

    Advice to Management

    Try to give more substantive assignments to summers when possible.

    I worked at Cleary Gottlieb for less than a year

    Pros

    Interesting work. Significant responsibility as a summer associate. Opportunity to work abroad during the summer. Excellent compensation. Willingness to accommodate unexpected needs. I was treated very well by all employees that I came in contact with at the firm. Also, the firm's extracurricular cultural activities for the summer associates were top-notched. And we were able to dine at very fine restaurants occasionally...

    Cons

    The stellar experience that I had as a summer associate may not have translated to similar treatment as a full-time associate, according to others that I know who worked at Cleary after graduating from law school and had some negative experiences with administrators and other lawyers.
