  1. "A great law firm"

    Former Employee - Associate in Boston, MA

    I worked at Foley Hoag full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    As far as law firms go, it's hard to beat Foley Hoag as a place to work. Great benefits, mostly humane and caring partners who will accommodate family and other situations, and interesting work, too.

    Cons

    It's still a law firm! Bad things happen to clients that will result in vacations being cancelled or other lawyers needlessly stressing out. But that's the exception rather than the standard operating procedure.

    Advice to Management

    Foley Hoag is the most transparent law firm I know of, in terms of information-sharing on financials, etc. with associates. Keep it up and go deeper.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. Great admin and human resources staff.

    I have been working at Foley Hoag part-time

    Pros

    Collegial atmosphere, bright & motivated lawyers at all levels, interesting work, responsive management, great location. I had a good feeling about this place from the day I interviewed and never lost it. I was very happy for the many years I worked there and left only because I had an opportunity outside the practice of law I couldn't pass up.

    Cons

    None for me. Excellent support staff, pretty standard benefits.
