    Decent Place to Work for BigLaw

    Pros

    Compared to other Big Law firms, it is a slightly more relaxed place to practice with a bit of a better lifestyle. The people are generally nice. The pay is great.

    Cons

    Long hours. Expectation is that you will always on call. Some partners are rude and unappreciative.
