I have been working at Latham & Watkins full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Many opportunities for growth. Overall, good group of attorneys and all of the luxuries of a global law firm. Nice offices, Friday morning breakfast, and great benefits.

Cons

There is a visible divide between staff and attorneys. The secretaries seem to always be unhappy. The hours can be long and the pressure for excellence is intense. Competitive legal market.

    I worked at Latham & Watkins full-time

    Pros

    Culture; salary; big interesting deals; smart people; lots of retreats. Also had the opportunity to work with many of the other offices.

    Cons

    Management did not handle the mass layoffs (45% including stealths) in 2009 well and many are still feeling the effects.
