I worked at Cooley full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Salary; they will just about hire anyone

Cons

No advancement; in order to work on the better matters, you need to really kiss up to the senior partners. The associates and non-exempt staff are treatly horribly. The firm is so cheap that you can't get a writing tablet or a box of pens to work with. However, the partners line their pockets with gold.

Advice to Management

Spread the wealth around and stop lining your pockets with gold. Gross misappropriate of funds in this firm.

    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!
