    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Allen & Overy full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, lawyers and clients were polite and respectful. Beautiful office and great work hours.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment, reception management team was fiefdom. Belittling, back stabbing culture. Not an enjoyable work environment and afraid of anyone doing their job better than them.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better and get rid of over bearing front desk management team.

    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.
