"Big Law is Big Law"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Upgrade the outdated technology in the office. Keep bringing in good people but don't neglect the folks that are already here.

Pros : Good, convenient location. Pay is above market. Benefits are excellent. The people here are genuinely nice. Mentoring is really lacking.
Cons : No real chance for advancement. Management really isn't there for you and is not approachable. Lack of work can be an issue. Big firm with the usual big firm problems.
