Advice to law firm management: Spend some extra time outside of work getting used to how they handle things and you'll be better prepared for the days.

Pros: I've only been here for 6 months but I can say that this is by far the best firm I've ever been at.

Cons: The library is huge and sometimes it take me a while to find what I'm looking for, but people will help if I ask.
