        Business Outlook


        Excellent salaries; beautiful office environments; great place to get experience and learn unique practice areas


        No work/life balance; expected to respond to emails after hours & during days off (even scheduled PTO). Passive-aggressive retaliation for standing up for yourself and you will starve for work if you tick off any partner
