    Pros

    Great structure and awesome practice. The majority of lawyers are very good and extremely capable. Outstanding offices in terrific cities.

    Cons

    mergers - particularly with the failed Luce Forward firm - sank the firm and its fortunes. It only gets worse under the Chinese firm.

    Advice to Management

    Fire everyone involved with the Luce deal; H U G E mistake. Get back to your core business.

    I have been working at McKenna Long & Aldridge full-time

    Pros

    They take EXCELLENT care of their employees! From the constant bonuses, salary raises, employee appreciation events and etc., they make sure that their people feel loved and appreciated, which in turn results in everyone coming to work and actually wanting to work hard!

    Cons

    Could be a bit more diverse, but hopefully that will be incorporated into the future!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the employee appreciation and incentive programs, they really do make a difference.

    I have been working at McKenna Long & Aldridge full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Staff at this firm is appreciated and treated with respect by the vast majority of attorneys. I have worked here for several years and have always been treated well. The firm likes to promote from within so paralegals can sometimes move into other jobs within the firm if they show interest and skill.

    Cons

    Decisions made at the uppper levels of management do not always take into account the effects on staff's ability to do their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should seek input from staff when making decisions that will impact the tools they need to do their jobs.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, it felt like a family.

    Cons

    Little growth opportunities for someone without a law degree

    Advice to Management

    Improve growth opportunities for staff and lower level attorneys. By decreasing the leaps between positions or recognition levels, employees, especially staff, would be more satisfied and more motivated to improve performance.
