    I have been working at Squire Patton Boggs part-time

    Pros

    Some lovely people who are very bright

    Cons

    A lot who aren’t very bright

    Advice to Management

    Pay your associates better, provide a better more transparent career path and sort out the weird guy who has been brought in to be the London managing partner but hides in his room occasionally, never knowing or caring to meet his underlings.

      I worked at Squire Patton Boggs full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Not much I can think of - Office Managing Partner a nice man, willing to listen but very rarely actions.

      Cons

      Dog eat dog Some of the Senior Partners treat staff like something on the bottom of their shoe Some “colleagues” will do their best to stab you in the back at any opportunity

      Advice to Management

      Deal with the behaviour of some of the senior partners Don’t encourage the “cliques” which build up in the support departments.

      International firm, people really get behind different causes.

      Pros

      There are no pros for this firm.

      Cons

      Firm are all take, no give. Even when you try your hardest, it will not be good enough. They have unrealistic expectations of their staff and have their favourites when it comes to promotions/pay rises/rules. Not a friendly atmosphere & no one mingles within the firm. Management do not care for your concerns and the support network needs major improvement.

      Pros

      Lovely firm, nice people in the Manchester office

      Cons

      Too much control from the USA. The firm itself cannot bat an eyelid without approval from the US, really annoying to all.

      Advice to Management

      Review protocols with the US side of the firm
