Former Employee - Summer Associate in Chicago, IL
Former Employee - Summer Associate in Chicago, IL
Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

The pay is market rate, the facilities are top notch, and the people get along quite well and treat each other with respect.

Cons

There is not a lot of work to go around, and management is not good at keeping people informed about the status of the firm.

Advice to Management

Be more open and upfront to employees about what is going on with the firm. Keeping people in the dark only hurt them in the long run. Ignorance is not bliss.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at K&L Gates LLP full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay is mid-range, offices are nice, most junior/mid level lawyers are friendly and the clients are generally good quality

    Cons

    Politics and internal gossip are constant, no ethics from the partners. Senior Associate in Melbourne office assaulted an employee and allowed to remain working there for a year while on bail, placing other women in the office at risk! It was an open secret in the office and management refused to do anything about it even though lots of people complained and felt unsafe. Partners are dishonest and don't care about staff.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect
