    Pros

    Good work environment, good bonuses, flexibility in determining your own schedule. There are lots of opportunities to do pro bono work and all pro bono hours count just like billable hours.

    Cons

    Work can come at any time, twenty four hours a day, seven days per week. Chances of making partner are small, and there is little transparency on partnership admissions.

    Advice to Management

    The more communication with the associates, the better. The new focus on evaluations is good, but they need to make sure that the evaluators use the same standards.
