Featured Review

Former Employee - Lawyer

I worked at Gilbert + Tobin full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Access to top-tier, interesting work and clients. Work with very talented people who are interested and passionate about their area of expertise.

Cons

Like any other law firm, those who are promoted as partners are promoted because they are "rainmakers" and not necessarily because they're good managers. This means you've got some leaders with very... high IQ but very low EQ.
