    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Shearman & Sterling full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interesting assignments and good opportunity to learn.

    Cons

    Interoffice relationship betweens partners in the same department where senior partner's book of business provided cover and enabled junior partner to impose a reign of terror over staff and attorneys.

    Advice to Management

    Better manage interoffice relationships especially between members of same department and manage having hostile work environments for everyone else.
