Pros

CGK provides excellent opportunities to work on very interesting technology law issues, along with related subject matter areas. It has a self-described "Cooley culture" that allows you to set your own work/life balance.

Cons

It can be a "who you know" not "what you know" kind of place at times. If you are not part of the inner circle, you may not get the good deals to work on or the opportunities for advancement that other may get.

Advice to Management

Continue to be a firm that focuses on the person rather than the bottom line and in so doing don't lose sight of each member of the Cooley team.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The best reasons to work for these weirdos are the location and salary.

    Cons

    If you want to take a trip back to high school and deal with cliques and kissing ass then this place is for you. The people are absolutely crazy. I've never worked somewhere like that before. I would avoid it at all costs.

    Advice to Management

    I would say something but my mom always told me not to say anything if you can't say something nice.
