    Pros

    A lot of support, training and the opportunity to succeed. Great benefits.

    Cons

    When you're talented, you get used a ton. There tends to be inequality in workloads. Low pay.

    Advice to Management

    You lost a lot of good staff members because of unequal workloads and below industry pay.

    Good work life balance. Firm is a leader in many aspects of the community so employees are proud to work here.

    I have been working at Robins Kaplan full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is an excellent form culture and emphasis on excellence. Benefits are fair and the partners are accessible. Also, the commitment to pro-bono allows you to get involved in interesting projects.

    Cons

    The firm seems a bit focused on Minneapolis rather than regional associates and more vacation time would be a definite improvement.

    Advice to Management

    I think the billable hour expectation is fair as is the performance evaluation but more attention to regional offices and more diverse associates would really improve the work environment.
