    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 10 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.

    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.
