I have been working at Latham & Watkins full-time (More than 10 years)
Inclusive and team-focused culture; long-term employees that have become life-long friends; generous benefits.
No cons. I have been at the firm for over 23 years for a reason.
I worked at Latham & Watkins full-time (More than 5 years)
Goal was to create global law firm with small office environment
Lost that tight-knit family feel through growth of firm; too many management layers in organization.
Advice to Management
Create avenues of growth for administrative and legal support staff. Shed the legal secretaries who are not carrying their weight, but "married" to their partners. Giving them raises/bonuses just because of who their partners are hurts morale of the best employees.
People are extremely sharp but are able to have a conversation about things other than work. Compensation and benefits are very competitive, so there is reward for the demanding work and hours. Senior attorneys are some of the best, so there are excellent examples to learn from.
People are too busy to stop and talk, whether it be casual or even shop talk. I think the informal mentoring that is helpful to building expertise and teams is minimal.
