    I worked at Baker Botts full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Salaries, salary levels for both support staff and fee-earners is competitive in the market.
    Client base, the client base and cases that the fee-earners deal with is very compelling and attractive to any fee-earner in the particular fields of expertise.

    Cons

    The management in London. One particular member of staff was particularly difficult to deal with and unfortunately was a member of the senior leadership team. Most individuals within the London office had an issue with this individual's management style, resulting in many employees leaving the firm directly because of this person. Losing a talented workforce because of one individual does not make good business sense,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take feedback from staff. Support staff are in the main, just that, support staff. No time is taken to hear feedback from them, get opinions on how things can be changed/improved and as such the turnover is quite high. As a member of the support staff there was never any feeling of being valued
