        Approves of CEO

        I have been working at Ropes & Gray full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Great work-life balance and great firm to work for!

        Cons

        You’re the support side at a law firm so you’re undervalued and underpaid. A lot of red tape and little care for employee happiness (again this is definitely more apparent on the support side).

        Advice to Management

        Stop treating the support staff like they are so disposable.
