          I worked at Hughes Hubbard full-time

          Pros

          Great colleagues, challenging work, good pay.

          Cons

          BigLaw is always challenging. There are lots of articles to check out to know what you're getting into. But you're also probably not reading this if you're seriously considering the role.

          Advice to Management

          Keep working closely with your team.

          Some really great partners to work for, great market pay and benefits, and a bit more of a work-life balance than other firms.

          Pros

          People are friendly and easy to work with. The work is interesting and often engaging and the benefits for attorneys are decent.

          Cons

          There seems to be a lack of direction with the firm and it doesn't feel like there's a real career track available. You'll be asked to work as much time as you have available and if you aren't, then best to consider your next step.
