    I have been working at Perkins Coie full-time

    Pros

    Wonderful people, both staff and attorneys. Pays well and has great benefits including health insurance, paid parking, generous 401(k) contributions, an end of year bonus, a Wellness program, and access to an on-site gym. In general, they respect work-life balance and encourage employees to take time off.

    Cons

    Communication is not always great and the firm depends a lot on various programs and software, which crash a lot. A lot of time is wasted on administrative tasks, which often need to be done and re-done several times. Management is rolling out new initiatives and the culture is changing. Not sure yet whether it will shake out to be good or bad.
