"A Solid Firm"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

If you go here, be sure to stick it out for the long haul and hope you make it to higher positions.

Pros : I was at Covington and Burling for over 2 years and the staff is lovely, helps however they can with anything.
Cons : The pay is a bit on the low side for the workload involved but the raises are fantastic.
