I have been working at Davis Polk full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The people are great. Everyone is exceptionally smart and dedicated to their work. Some might see big law firms as being terrifying places where everyone is out to make a buck and move up the ladder and, although that may be some peoples intention, everyone is a team-player and wonderful to work with.

Cons

I find that the firm's ability to train its' staff and incoming interns, associates, employees, etc on the technical programs and procedures of the company--which can be stifling.
