Pros

Fantastic people/culture with a good balance between work and personal time. There is also a vibrant social life in the office which is greatly facilitated by the lack of snooty and otherwise holier-than-thou attorneys which can be fairly commonplace in large corporate firms. The Real Estate practice is very highly regarded and the firm is expanding at an extraordinary pace.

Cons

It's Boston so the compensation levels are not the same as New York and the extent to which you're likely to pick up huge multinational clients with complex legal needs, while possible, is substantially decreased. This is offset, however, by smaller startups from the BioTech and Life Science mecca of Cambridge if you are interested in that area of law.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep it up. The expansion and branding initiatives have been a big boost to employees.

    Pros

    Great Culture
    Free food every other week
    Improvement in technology
    Good Benefits

    Cons

    Pay is way below market
    Work assignments for paralegals is mediocre
    A lot of the attorneys are very lazy in performing simple tasks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider training attorneys to be computer literate. This is a major law firm, you should compensate your talent appropriately. There are a lot of good and talented people leaving the firm because they are not compensated well enough.

    Doesn't Recommend
