    I worked at Cleary Gottlieb

    Pros

    benefits, awesome PTO, very good managers, cafeteria, location, technology is up to date (outlook, computers ect.), innovative firm, top 10 law firm, great international presence

    Cons

    very difficult to advance, hight turn over, doesn't hire from within nearly as much as it should, work/life balance can be a tough

    Advice to Management

    Hire from within more! and create unique roles if you want to keep someone from leaving!
