    Sucks the soul right out of you

    Mar 22, 2013 - Marketing in Chicago, IL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great compensation and benefits. If you do your job well you get a bonus at the end of the year. It used to be a longevity bonus but they recently changed it. Insurance is great but expensive.

    Cons

    Long hours, stressful work environment, poor management (at least where I worked), micromanaging bosses. If you're not into kissing you-know-what, you won't succeed. They have a reputation for working people 'to death,' and it's true. I say it sucks the soul right out of you because anytime you think you're doing well, someone will find a way to knock you down again. I never felt like I had a chance to succeed, and eventually I believed that I never would.

    Pros

    Worked in the LA office and had some of the friendliest attorneys Management is relatively laid back than other firms Flexibility on schedule and competitive pay

    Cons

    Sometimes long hours but that's to be expected. Some of the supervising attorneys may be extremely demanding and not very approachable.
