Prioritize culture.

I thought it would be an amazing international firm to work at but it was terrible.

The management, especially the female partners, treat young women attorneys with disdain and provide them virtually no support. It is a very self-serving culture with very little authentic collegiality or very little interest in cultivating expertise for younger associates.

There are a few kind and decent people but they are largely drowned out by the individualistic and cruel cultural environment.

Junior Paralegal

Before having attorneys assign complex projects to paralegals, such as those where legal research is required, consider having the paralegal complete several mock assignments, to ensure the knowledge to perform the task satisfactorily is there. Cite-checking with the bluebook can be assignned more freely, but legal research requires a skill that needs to be built over time.

Opportunity to work of various types of cases, learn many aspects of paralegal work through training and assignments, and be able to discuss backgroud of cases with associates and partners.

If work becomes scarce (happened to me when many attorneys left the firm several years ago), you might be assigned a document review or inventory/document storage project and start wondering about the stability of your position. If this happens, you will feel it necessary to directly ask attorneys or more senior paralegals about projects you can do or help with, in order to show you're contributing to the firm.

Many learning opportunities, direct interaction with all levels of attorneys, mostly casual/open door environment, lunch or happy hour drinks provided after prevailing in a large case or after a busy period. If you start working on a contractual basis and do good work/show initiative, you may be hired on directly, as I was.

Challenging place to work, training

Quicker upward pace in advancing oneself is needed. Great environment, but pushing forward as far as management needs to happen.

A great place to work, love most of the people here. Great to work with and great energy all around. Team focused and cross training is there.

I was hard to move beyond what I was brought in for. It took much more time than I thought is should have. The path forward isn't quick.

Great Firm

Keep employees around that want to keep working here and enjoying what a great firm this is to work at. This will make things great.

I really like how well everyone works together at this firm and how nice it is all together. It is an enjoyable place to be around.

I had to leave as I received an offer from another company and this firm did not want to match the offer or do anything about that.

Good firm to work for

Work hard and make yourself noticed, otherwise you may not be able to get desired promotions. As there are many attorneys, it is sometimes hard to please them. You need to be good at it.

This firm provided good training and a diverse industry learning experience. The employees are generally friendly and fun to work with. The work load was manageable and I was able to maintain good work-life balance. I was privileged to work with a special group attorney whose teaching will always help me. Overall a very enjoyable time here, everyone is very inclusive and helpful.

The firm is very work focused in its outlook and does not bear any leniency. To survive at this firm one need to be very much dynamic and adaptive. Lack of autonomy provided to junior staff.
