Biggest law firm in the world most years, always competes for it!

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

Keep up the good work.

Partners and associates are very nice, patient and always have time to answer a question.

I really have enjoyed my experience there. For me, nothing is wrong with the firm.

Everybody was nice to me.

Jon Alumbaugh, manager of Global Information security. Do not do business with this Firm if he is still employed there. There were frequent information security breaches due to his incompetence.

A Lovely Staff

Ask a lot of questions and be prepared to take your work home with you for the first month or so.

Everyone here at Baker & McKenzie is super helpful and willing to do anything to help you succeed. Treats me like family.

The scheduling can be hectic to deal with at times but it's certainly worth putting the time in.

Supportive Staff

Treat your workers more like equals and less like monetary goals.

Most of the staff are friendly and supportive. You will build your network here. The environment is professional. Management is competent.

The large size can be overwhelming to those who prefer a smaller sized firm. All they care about money and pleasure.

Trade in Your Social Life for a Great Working Environment

Advice of the Firm: Chance to work with great co-workers, service high profile companies and individuals, and gain excellent experience one of the highest grossing firms in the world.

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.
