Pros: There is plenty of work to go around and I have found as someone that really enjoys their work, that this is beneficial since I am always learning new things on the job and am always busy which is a huge plus.

Advice to law firm management: This is probably a decent fit for many new associates. You may very well thrive at this firm. But get to know the management first before applying.
Pros: At this firm, associates and partners alike are subject to ethical standards which they may not be used to. That is probably because the firm is not interested in getting into ethical hot water.
Cons: The partnership track is not well-defined. The managing partners do not appear interested in bringing on new management at this time and it is not clear when that might change. If you want to make partner, this may not be the firm for you.
