    I worked at White & Case full-time

    Pros

    Interesting cases, fast-paced, OT benefits, modern office

    Cons

    Long hours, unpredictable schedule, high stress

    Advice to Management

    Managers gossip all day, nothing is ever improved, they are extremely critical and will never truly manage when other legal assistants are not pulling their weight. People would stay at this job if the managers set great examples, but they don't create a positive environment and eventually all the legal assistants burn out. The company is ever-growing and the managers need to hire more help and supervise who is really helping teams and who is not.
