    I have been working at Hogan Lovells full-time

    Pros

    Great clients, complex cases, great opportunities depending on who you work for.

    Cons

    No review process for associates. No one cares about your career growth which hampers possibility for advancement. Firm is too big and too political. Red tape for days for even the smallest thing. A lot of lip service to culture but no action. Racial diversity among attorneys is very, very low.

    I worked at Hogan Lovells (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    people in the office were generally nice to work with

    Cons

    no work-life balance; people were constantly stressed to complete projects

    Advice to Management

    Management promotes time outs to decompress, but people are so busy they don't have time to read the newsletters that tell them to take a breather.

    I worked at Hogan Lovells full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, helpful IT staff, interesting work, everyone is helpful whether they are a partner or staff member.

    Cons

    Management can be blind to what they need to do. Work comes in waves. You either sit there and do nothing all day, or you work non-stop and work overtime. If you aren't planning on staying for a very long period there is almost no chance of raises, bonuses, or promotion. Everything is completely set before you evaluation. You don't get better pay unless you have a better title.

    Advice to Management

    Raises and promotions should be based on employee value, and production. Everyone with the same title isn't equal and those who are being more productive/valuable deserve better pay or they will leave.
