    Pros

    - generous vacation/personal days allowance
    - good benefits options
    - promotional opportunities available, depending on your field
    - no guilt trips for taking time off (in my experience)

    Cons

    - slow pace of any changes (including the numerous layers of approval that must be met before anything new is implemented) is frustrating and counter-productive
    - streamlining is needed in many areas
    - too many processes just for the sake of process

    Although the law firm community is notoriously slow when it comes to making changes, the firm needs to rethink its structure and become leaner in order to stay competitive.
