I worked at Orrick full-time

Pros

Market matching pay; high quality work; early responsibility; generally flexible hours (so long as the work gets done). They offer a non-partner track for associates who do not aspire to (or have the endurance to reach) partner -- its still unclear how long a career one could expect on that path.

Cons

Though flexible, the hours are many. Not specific to Orrick, but law firm culture/environment is a tough fit for most folks. Partner track is ~10 years.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Benefits are great. My assignments are great to work with. My coworkers are also great.

    Cons

    Management doesn't listen. There is too much bureacracy and management needs to listen to "staff" needs, and not just "lawyers."
