    Pros

    Great people. Great environment to work.

    Cons

    The program is requiring me to write five words in this category. I cannot think of any cons.

    I have been working at Jackson Walker full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    JW management is thoughtful and people-centered. They listen to ideas, opportunities, and outside-the-box ideas. With great colleagues, they remain fiercely business minded to ensure the continued longevity of the firm for years to come.

    Cons

    Like all big law firms, the hours can be tough, but compared to other big law firms, it removes as many obstacles as possible to allow for growth, valuable use of your time, and mentorship.

    Advice to Management

    Always stay focused on the future and the change agents who will lead you there. Listen to what people are asking forward and understand why - you're already doing a great job of that.

    I worked at Jackson Walker full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work environment is collegial and most partners understand that you have a life outside of work.

    Cons

    Still a large law firm so there are demands on your time that can get out of balance.

    Advice to Management

    Create long term work incentives like paid sabbaticals that allow associates to recharge.

    Pros

    Kind attorneys and shortened work week. Location in downtown was ideal. Fridays were casual. Reviews were given every year. Employees were appreciated.

    Cons

    Too many attorneys to one secretary. Salaries are better at other firms. Too many secretaries not properly trained on new technologies.
