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.
