    great firm

    Pros

    The firm offers challenging work and a collegial environment. Innovative leadership and relatively entrepreneurial for a law firm. Has grown carefully and strategically over the years.

    Cons

    Long hours; path to partnership is unclear. New hyper focus on social media presence and increased spend on marketing is hard to rationalize.

    Good for BigLaw but still BigLaw

    Apr 15, 2020 - Strategist in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Modern offices, laid back environment (relatively, compared to other BigLaw firms), good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Experience really depends on your manager, can be negative if you don't work on the right team. Expectation to work long hours. Everything is geared toward rainmakers and superstar partners. Even if it's not always the best idea, they ultimately call the shots. Lots of brown-nosing and being fake.
