    I worked at Hogan Lovells as a contractor

    Pros

    Excellent Cafeteria, the food is very affordable, half the price of purchasing it outside. They have a great selection of fresh juices and smoothies, the rooftop is great to get some sun in the afternoon, they are renovating the building so everything is going to be updated. They also have awesome free coffee. They have great pro bono campaigns.

    Cons

    HL is a good company, but it is not so good if you are a contract employee. If you are one, bring your A game, always try to be noticed by the manager, get on their nice list. They hired a big group of people when I was working there for the same position, and trained us for a month, then the last day of training they let go half of the people without notice. I think there was a huge gap in communication between the management and employees in regards to expectations. There is also a clear division between the associates and the staff in this firm.

    Advice to Management

    The company invests in its people, and the people make the company great. May be have better policies to treat contract employees, as a leading global law firm that's the least you can do!

    Pros

    Close to the metro. Overtime pay can be nice but it is a double edged sword as you can be bullied into working overtime by superiors. Also not sure how this works but I've heard if you work a lot of overtime it will bump your paycheck into a higher tax bracket and you don't even end up benefiting financially. The office building is really nice and has received numerous awards for sustainability and efficient energy usage! The Christmas party is pretty nice. The subsidized cafeteria is pretty good but has been closed for months for renovations. There are tons of good restaurants and happy hour spots in the immediate area also.

    Cons

    The job is tedious and you need to learn database/workflow computer programs that are out-dated and you will probably never use again at any job in the future. Extremely deadline driven. You will often be expected to meet unreasonable deadlines. If the deadlines are not met, you will often be called in for a one on one meeting with a supervisor. Even if you meet your deadlines, it is generally stressful nonetheless to make sure they get done. Constantly busy and often pressured to work overtime on weeknights and especially the weekends. The content of the work is very boring and you often feel uneasy as the general Department mantra is "no mistakes allowed." A lot of printing documents to pdf and attaching them to online workflow programs.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know where to begin. I'm not sure how much of the blame falls on management or whether the Conflicts field is just generally like this, but it is not a pleasant place to work if you are ambitious.

    Pros

    Great compensation for overtime. Easy to save money (since you're always in the office). Delicious in-house cafeteria and a good core of Co workers

    Cons

    Training program is trial and error, which isn't the worst thing in the world until you get virtually ignored oncenter the newest batch of new-hires need to be trained. Very high turnover in a massive department spread over five cities in four countries, difficult to manage and no real sense of cohesiveness.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a full-time new hire trainer.

    I have been working at Hogan Lovells full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -some people are nice (but most are boring)
    -the overtime can be a pay boost (what at what expense??)
    -the cafeteria isn't bad

    Cons

    This is the worst place I have ever worked. I have mostly enjoyed my jobs in the past, but this place makes coming to work a miserable experience.

    -horrid management
    -long hours that are not even appreciated
    -basically required to do a part-time job's worth of overtime or you WILL get a bad review
    -pressure to work weekends and week day nights
    -most of the people at this place are petty and vindictive
    -DEFINITELY a place for career settlers
    -BORING work
    -skills don't transfer over to any other job
    -the company has a policy that it will not give anyone recommendations
    -pay is not great, especially for all the BS you will have to put up with

    Advice to Management

    -Stop treating your employees like children
    -Learn better management skills
    -Learn how to make your employees feel appreciated
    -Stop the drama

    I have been working at Hogan Lovells full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a hectic and busy environment, so you will never be bored.

    Cons

    In 2010, Hogan & Hartson merged with Lovells to create one of the world's largest law firms. As you can imagine, this drastically increased the amount of new business inquiries processed by the firm. Unfortunately, nothing has been done to increase the staffing needs which are absolutely necessary to handle this newly increased amount of work.

    Working at Hogan Lovells is like working in a sweat-shop. Think twice before accepting a job here unless you ready to sacrifice your entire life to a poorly paying job in an abusive environment

    Advice to Management

    Hire more personnel or at least
