    Pros

    The firm offers many opportunities for professional development through a series of lunch training seminars. The environment is sink or swim and you are provided with many opportunities to take projects and run with them.

    Cons

    Depending on the practice group, you can expect a fast-paced environment, high-pressure assignments and many early mornings, late nights and weekends. Taking time off requires multiple levels of approval and is not always granted.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The people are smart; the work is sophisticated. Steptoe recruits top talent from top law schools, but is extremely elitist (read snobby) about it.

    Cons

    There is almost no way to advance internally. Very few people make partner. The firm is extremely top heavy. Associates grind out the work and very few are promoted.

    Advice to Management

    The lack of advancement opportunity is completely demoralizing. The firm needs to open up more opportunity if it wants to retain talent.
