I worked at Cooley full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Co-workers - salary is better because they pay more in trying to get people to stay

Cons

Management discriminates against their employees; no advancement

Advice to Management

Practice what you preach and do not discriminate against employees. The firm offers no real advancement and if an employee makes any complaint, they will find themselves out the door - this firm discriminates against its employees as well. You would think being a law firm that they would follow the law and be more ethical but they are not. They are arrogant to the point that they believe they are above the law.

    I worked at Cooley full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nationwide firm, excellent benefits, fantastic salary.

    Cons

    No real cons to report. This was a great company to work for, before the Kronish merger, so hopefully not much has changed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the vision and values from the Cooley Godward days!

    I worked at Cooley full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting work, both large, successful clients and emerging industries and startups. Loved the people I worked with, and the lavish environment.

    Cons

    Tends to be a bit bureaucratic and snobbish sometimes, and my admin manager was watching the clock too much as opposed to paying attention to the quality of work being done by professional and paraprofessional staff.
