    I have been working at Berry Appleman & Leiden full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Smart co-workers (some, not all)
    -Great learning opportunity if placed on the right cluster and right attorney (direct manager)

    Cons

    -Bureaucracy
    -Office politics
    -Lack of enforcement on cumbersome management rules

    Advice to Management

    You know, we work with salary data all day long. We know we are being underpaid. People stay there until they find the next better thing. Is that what work environment should aspire to be? Think not.
