    I worked at Allen & Overy full-time

    Pros

    Onsite facilities and amenities are excellent

    Cons

    They talk a lot about diversity and have all kinds of initiatives, but it's still a big city firm that only cares about chargeable hours. The smile doesn't reach the eyes.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees a safe environment to whistleblow. There's no trust that disclosing something won't be severely career limiting.
