I worked at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Incredibly smart people work at Freshfields and for the most part, people are very nice. I had some of my best work experiences here. I got to work across multiple groups and was able to forge my own path. When I first worked there, it was such a great collaborative environment.

Cons

It's a little stuffy and there are definitely some people (mainly more junior lawyers) that act like they're experts even in those things that they're clearly not. As the credit crisis hit, it became a finger-pointing culture despite the work for company not really being affected.

Advice to Management

Be supportive of everyone and work on a more inclusive culture.
