I have been working at Kirkland & Ellis full-time (More than 3 years)

Energy and Utilities Practice Group was exception to work with - excellent career development.

Cons

I really don't think there were any cons... some long hours but that is to be expected in the industry.

    I have been working at Kirkland & Ellis full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The partners receive a huge share each year.

    Cons

    That huge share is generated by eliminating more and more support jobs, requiring those at the bottom to do the work of two or three. Former focus on a positive culture has been abandoned and replaced with the philosophy: "If you don't like it here, then go somewhere else."

    Advice to Management

    Look at how badly your technology is managed, and how your administrative teams are staffed. Then, change your technology leadership and hire more staff.

    I have been working at Kirkland & Ellis full-time

    Pros

    Solid litigation experience, excellent for formal training, and very good salary. Also, can help lead to other jobs given the brand name. Also, advancement in the firm is more about the quality of your work product and your commitment to hard work, rather than politics.

    Cons

    Like many law firms, the hours can be long. At least the pay makes up for it.
