Review:

"Be careful not to get pigeon-holed"

Current Employee Attorney in 5 years City, - Reviewed on March 11, 2019

Don’t let partners push associates into doing prosecution work, and then forcing them out when their billing rate it too high to do prosecution work.

Pros : Law firm had a good reputation. Pay is okay. Most partners are okay. Flexible work hours. Very nice facilities.
Cons : Some partners are far more concerned with pigeon-holing you to do their work, regardless of whether this kills your career. Associates are expendable.
Current or former employee? : Current Employee
Job type : Full time
Length of Employment : Less than a year
