    Pros

    Market pay and bonus, work from home often

    I have been working at Hogan Lovells full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    BigLaw can be hard. If you're going to be in the trenches doing hard work, you can't beat doing it with awesome, friendly people. I have found partners and other associates to be respectful, friendly, and invested in one another. Happy I chose to work here.

    Cons

    A couple years ago bonuses in DC were not the same as NYC. Now they are, and HL is right at the leading edge of compensation. So that used to be the complaint. Remaining complaint: more firm-minded activities should get billable hour credit.

    Pros

    Busy Work, don't let title fool you. You are doing more than assisting, more billing work than anything else

    Cons

    Give employees a title that gives them a sense of pride. "Assistant" does not begin to detail all that is performed under this title. Assistant/Billing Specialist is more like it

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Provide more professional development support

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Will help you out as long as you ask many questions but will have your back.

    Cons

    Stressful but all worth it. You get to know those in other departments who you will work with on a daily basis.
