    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Hogan Lovells full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits and perks such as subsidized cafeteria, free coffee drinks, casual work environment.

    Cons

    Manager competencies vary drastically from department to department. I switched from one department to another in the hopes of finding a better work/life balance at the firm. I then worked diligently for 2.5 years developing a successful relationship with my manager and when she left because of differences with senior management I wound up being treating in a manner that left me feeling unsupported, under-valued and not respected. After working in this negative environment I have made the decision that it is time for me to go. Not all departments are poorly managed, but when you find yourself in one it can lead to a highly stressful work environment resulting in a negative effect on employee morale.
