    "Solid place to work"

    I have been working at Hogan Lovells full-time

    Pros

    It is a solid company that has a loyal base of long term employees. It is in a traditional formal office building in a cool area in the heart of downtown DC. Working here, you feel like you are participating in big city corporate culture, which can be cool. Great Christmas party. Beautiful lobby. Convenient metro access, as it is located at the top of the Metro Center escalator. Friendly security staff. Subsidized cafeteria for employees where you can get good food for just a few dollars. Unlimited free iced tea and coffee.

    Cons

    If you're in a staff role supporting attorneys, it is generally the traditional cubicle setup. You just need to be prepared for that. If you're looking for an environment where people wear shorts and sandals and bring their dogs to work, you probably want to look elsewhere. Standard office culture and job functions for most non-attorneys.
