    Pros

    Venable is one of the few firms that has an amazing workplace culture from the partners down to the business personnel staff. Definitely a "work hard, play hard" atmosphere.

    Cons

    Work load can be overwhelming, but nothing anyone can't handle.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, and VERY kind and understanding attorneys. A great team to work with and overall just very nice people.

    Cons

    I think the head decision makers on the east coast should do a better job of making the staff feel more appreciated / heard during times such as COVID, but that isnt the fault of anyone that works in the SF office or our managers.

    Most co-workers have each other's back. If you have a decent attorney, it can be a good place.

    The worst supervisor I've ever encountered.
