Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP Reviews


"Not suitable for laterals"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on May 07, 2018

Advice to law firm management: If you are hiring laterals, value their choice of joining the firm and provide them with equal opportunities and benefit of doubt as the home-grown lawyers.

Pros: The firm has high profile clients and definitely a good place to begin your practice. However, if you are joining as a lateral, be ware! The treatment you receive is completely different from the home-grown lawyers. I have seen few laterals in the M&A/PE department that survived a year!

Cons: They are surprisingly cruel towards the laterals in the M&A/PE department. It feels like a frat house and it is not just the partners but fellow associates as well. It feels like you are constantly trying to be a part of a fraternity.

Partners to Avoid and Why: There are no specific ones to avoid. They can be good teaches when they want to, but they choose to be different towards laterals.

Favorite Things About this Firm: They have good clients, but again not easily accessible to laterals, specifically in the M&A group. Other departments (other than M&A) are friendly and nice to work with.

"Law Firm that offers Benefits"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on December 16, 2017

Advice to law firm management: There needs to be a continuation of partners offering more opportunities to juniors to learn. The amount of work should be reduced alongside the amount of hours.

Pros: The law firm is a place in which the level of work is in a higher degree. Partners of the law firm offer opportunities to juniors to learn more in the field.

Cons: The amount of work associated within the firm results in hours of work that may not be for everyone. IT department has some restrictions that can sometimes cause difficulty in competing day to day tasks.

"Innovative Atmosphere"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on September 25, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Raise the compensation to an adequate amount. Put some more competent people in management.

Pros: The atmosphere is very innovative. The lawyers are professional and some of the best. This is a good place for newcomers to work. Everyone is friendly and supportive.

Cons: Some people in management didn't work very well with employees. The pay was alright, but not what it should be.

"Benefits, Benefits, Benefits. "   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on June 05, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Management needs a shakeup.

Pros: Benefits, Benefits, Benefits.

Cons: Like most firms I've worked in or read about, this firm offers very little time to have a social life. Management can create a very toxic environment at times. Very rare chances to move up. I busted my butt for more than a decade before ever even being considered for a promotion.
