      Pros

      They treat you like family as long as you come ready to do your best and work. The negative reviews made me worried when I applied but I got a job offer over a year before graduating law school. They have taught me so much.

      Cons

      The hours can be tough, but I think that is expected at any large firm. From what I have heard of friends working in other firms it’s pretty much the same or worse.
