I worked at Akin Gump full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good pay, good management, willingness to buy tools required to complete projects.

Cons

As they got bigger and influence shifted from the DC and Texas offices to the NY office, I felt they put partner compensation above all else. Traditionally they had focused on development and appreciation of both staff and attorneys. Obviously, attracting and retaining the top attorneys is key to the success of any law form, but valuing staff is also important.

    Pros

    The atmosphere is collegial. The compensation is consistently at the top of the market. The management is extremely competent and focused on long-term stability.

    As with all firms, the hours are long and unpredictable. Work-life balance is a constant struggle.
