Advice to law firm management: Be sure to ask questions whenever you have any. They will do their best to answer you as they are able to.

Pros: Thompson & Knight LLP is a wonderful firm with a friendly and inviting staff. They are knowledgeable and able to help out whenever I have questions.

Advice to law firm management: People want to be rewarded, not punished. Recognize your associates for a job well done instead of punishing them when they don't measure up.

Pros: This firm has a lot of history and some very impressive offices. It operates globally, so there is a lot of room for advancement. People are here generally very nice, and there are some brilliant legal minds to be found, as well.

Cons: Partners are pretty inaccessible to associates and there is not a lot of positive recognition occurring. Associates are expected to perform at a high level, and are chastised if they don't meet expectations.

Current or former employee?: Current Employee
