Pros

For a law firm its size, it has a higher than normal percentage of down to earth, good to work with people.

Cons

Very long partnership track. It is difficult to ascertain what you need to accomplish to advance. Compensation is mediocre for the market and the size of the firm.

Advice to Management

Be more communicative with your associates. Try to create a legitimate and non-stigmatizing non-partnership track. There are plenty of very talented and hardworking attorneys who would be willing to work for a bit less than market if there are realistic and available flexible work arrangements that would permit some semblance of a work/life balance.

    I worked at Venable LLP full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent place to work. A big firm without all of the big firm hassles, inefficiencies and bureaucracy. Venable still has some of these, but far fewer than most big firms.

    Cons

    When I was there, the head of my department took credits that should have been passed down to others. He is no longer with the firm.

    Advice to Management

    Monitor how managers and other partners distribute credits.


  2. "Abusive attorneys, bipolar management, no help from HR"
