    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The associate group is a young and very collegiate (you can get help when you are overworked). It is a great experience for recent grads.

    Cons

    The pay is a little depressing when you are there until 3 or 4 in the morning every day for a month. There is almost no possibility for career advancement for associates. It's three years and out.

    Advice to Management

    Associate morale gets pretty low and the perception is that management does not care. It is a client-focused firm so client requests must be honored, but management should do more to bolster morale.
