    Pros

    The firm has a great reputation. They provide attorneys with excellent resources. Good facilities. Many very nice people. Some of the partners are extremely well-respected around the country and are tops in their fields.

    Cons

    It's still Big Law. Although not as bad as some firms, there's still a cut-throat attitude sometimes. And, of course, there's a tremendous emphasis on billable hours.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with associates. Emphasize quality more over the quantity of billable hours. Pay more attention to good writing. And get into at least the mod-2000s technologically.

    Pros

    The environment is enriching to anyone seeking to gain a sense of what is expected within the legal profession. Everyone is more than willing to help you along the way.

    Cons

    For some the environment can be deemed as a little conservative, but this should be expected within one of the largest corporate firms in Texas.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to create a more engaged system of communication among the employees, creating a greater sense of interaction can only enhance an already amazing experience.
