    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Goodwin full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Competitive compensation for attorneys, practice group leaders that actually care about associates being happy (may vary practice group to practice group - but mine is great), endless training opportunities, great benefits, very supportive of flexible work arrangements, very supportive of doing pro bono work, at the associate level at least if you're a jerk you end up being shown to the door.

    Cons

    Like any firm, there are long hours, travel is often required. Like any firms, there can be internal politics that aren't always fair or logical.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget about the people - they are what make the place great, and make clients want to use the firm.
