    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Cleary Gottlieb full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very smart, very professional people; some people were fantastic to work with. Pro-bono and volunteer opportunities. Great brand name. Get to work on big-name cases. Great paycheck and benefits, ok perks.

    Cons

    Insane working hours, rude attorneys and partners, no sense of work ownership, largely grunt work.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your human capital better and maybe more of us would stay. Train your attorneys to work better with non-attorneys.
