    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Garrigues for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Prestige Working alongside the best of the field Possibility to get published work Top clients and issues Great work environment, no-nonsense kind of place, if you work hard you are valued. Incredible roster of Firm Partners, most of them (maybe except a couple) are incredibly talented, leaders, inspirational, and top professionals.

    Cons

    Being assigned to a team or under a partner that does not share the incredibly good company culture. Yes, long hours... but we all know that when we sign the contract, is not a surprise. The younger lawyers, even with 5 years of experience sometimes even 6 years, work at small cubicles.

        Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Madrid

        I have been working at Garrigues full-time for more than 6 years

        Pros

        I work for an international company 13 countries on 4 continents, but with a unique culture and values.

        Cons

        Working in an international law firm like Garrigues, involves a lot of work, working under pressure and with a high level of demand. This downside is at the same time an opportunity

        I worked at Garrigues full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Excellent structure. Well known and respected office. Evolved in many important operations.

        Cons

        Terrible work-life balance. You have time to enter but no time to time to go back home. Endless job and no recognition.

        Advice to Management

        Workers are people not tools. Respect the working hours. If people are spending too much time at the office, you shall hire more instead of focus only on profit.

        I worked at Garrigues full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Everything runs very smoothly. You have all the resources a lawyer can need. Important and fun cases and important clients. You get involved pretty fast with a good level of responsibility.

Very good human resources team and all its support staff in general are...

        Cons

        Total disregard to the body's need for sleep. No work/life balance. If you appreciate this, stay away. Also, too competitive. Lack of spirit trying to find the best solution for the client. Everyone is worried about their future chances to climb the ladder as fast as possible.

        Advice to Management

        Adapt to the new era. Sleep is not only welcome but mandatory.
