    Pros

    In the intellectual property group, Ropes & Gray offers a lot of training to new associates and techical advisors. Every one is busy and you need to set your own boundaries on work life balance. I have observed the firm support numerous TAs and associates transfer offices or increase the amount of time they work remotely.

    Cons

    It is a fairly reserved environment. While the benefits package is overall very good, they do not have any matching for retirement plans.

    It's just a job now - but hasn't always been that way

    Pros

    Co-workers are great and work well as a team. Associates (for the most part) treat staff as people and not as a subspecies. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Management says they care about the staff, but they don't. They keep hiring people with no related experience to supervise departments. Loosing qualified people (staff & attorneys) all the time and nothing seems to be done to stop it. Morale firm wide is very low.

    Review by a staff employee - unappreciated by Ropes & Gray management

    Jul 16, 2009 - Income Tax Accountant in Boston, MA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The pay is very competitive. The benefits are extremely good compared to most places I have worked. The time off of 4 weeks was also an added benefit.

    Cons

    The leadership is very poor at looking into the future. An example of this would be that they hired me in September of 2008 and by January of 2009 they told us that they are outsourcing our department.
