    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Stroock full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Friendly staff and junior attorneys

    Cons

    Upper management is old-school. Bonus is not guaranteed even if you meet hours. Lack of communication on assignments from many senior level attorneys. Lack of work, and lack of quality work for junior attorneys to gain useful experience.

    I worked at Stroock for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The firm is up to date on the latest technologies and you can gain hands on experience (if you probe the right people).

    Cons

    Stroock recently decided to outsource their User Support and Word Processing departments to an MSP to recoup the money it lost during the mass exodus of attorneys headed by former head honcho Stewart Coleman.
