      Good, respectful, and smart people

      Pros

      I worked at Fish for almost 5 years as a litigation Associate, first in the Redwood City office and then in the Atlanta office. If I wanted to stay in law firm life, I would have stayed at Fish forever. You will work with the smartest people in the IP world, and your coworkers will be generally friendly and helpful. For a law firm, Fish offers great flexibility and work-life balance. Most offices are very flexible in allowing associates to work from home. In my experience, Fish also rewards hard work and they take care of their own. If you take responsibility and work hard, it will be noticed and appreciated (at least in my experience). Great support for women lawyers -- many women lawyers take time to help other women. Law firm life is never going to be a bed of roses, and I did unfortunately interact with one bad apple (which is bound to happen anywhere you go), but I truly do believe that Fish is one of the best.

      Cons

      When I first started at Fish I didn't really have anyone to help me navigate how to get staffed on cases. I believe they are now implementing a new program that will help junior lawyers get staffed up, including increased mentoring.
