    I worked at Squire Patton Boggs full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Not much I can think of - Office Managing Partner a nice man, willing to listen but very rarely actions.

    Cons

    Dog eat dog
    Some of the Senior Partners treat staff like something on the bottom of their shoe
    Some “colleagues” will do their best to stab you in the back at any opportunity

    Advice to Management

    Deal with the behaviour of some of the senior partners
    Don’t encourage the “cliques” which build up in the support departments.

    Pros

    There are no pros for this firm.

    Cons

    Firm are all take, no give. Even when you try your hardest, it will not be good enough. They have unrealistic expectations of their staff and have their favourites when it comes to promotions/pay rises/rules. Not a friendly atmosphere & no one mingles within the firm. Management do not care for your concerns and the support network needs major improvement.
