See reviews for Baker & McKenzie. from attorneys and other legal professionals below.
Concentrate on career development of associates.
It is indeed a very good law firm! It has offices all over the world! If you want international exposure, this can be a GREAT PLACE!
Not the best, but the biggest firm. In Washington, much of it can be a regulatory practice, and Washington is the regulatory capital of the world! Some other areas may suffer.
Just REALLY interview THEM and see why they may want you. Regulatory practice and international client base is truly top notch, but are they interviewing you for litigation? What cases and clients in litigation do they current have? Will the current active matters last a long time? Every firm would like you to somehow generate new work yourself, but will the current work keep you going for at least two or three more years?
Friendliness, location, commitment to success, chance to say you work in the biggest law firm in the world!
Less than a year

Trade in Your Social Life for a Great Working Environment
The long hours at this firm are dispiriting, especially if you're like me and are hoping to have a social life outside of working at the firm. The senior management may need a spring cleaning and refocus their role and involvement in the rest of the staff's work.
