    I worked at Stroock full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pro-bono work, public service work, overtime. The opportunities are yours if you take initiative.

    Cons

    I had a great experience and mentors so I have nothing negative to say.

    I worked at Stroock for less than a year

    Pros

    You will meet smart people, as in most other Big Law situations. The contacts I made there were helpful in supporting me when I was trying to find other employment after what Stroock did to me...which leads me to the cons section.

    Cons

    Support staff beware. They recruited me out of a good situation with what was a better offer. They promised me longevity and job stability (that was one of my number 1 priorities). Less than year later, they let me go for lack of billable hours (and gave me a laughable severance package) even though everyone in the legal world knows that summertime is the slowest season. Not only that, they never even consulted the attorneys...

    Advice to Management

    Support staff is valuable and what management doesn't understand is that people are not meant to be working like slaves all year long. Biggest piece of advice is do a better job with your support staff before you lose all your talent and rightfully so.

    I worked at Stroock full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A lot of great people worked there. They did a great job of hiring

    Cons

    Constant fear of being downsized or right sized depending on perspective. Tough environment to work in for that reason.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully things have improved financially so you guys can get back to being great

    I have been working at Stroock full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Surrounded by really good people, great pay and benefits. The management seems to care about their employees, which definitely doesn't happen at a lot of other places.

    Cons

    No cons that I can think of at this time.
