Pros: You will definitely get a chance to shine here. The senior attorneys are known for giving solid cases and clients to new lawyers to get their feet wet. Many new associates will appreciate this implicit trust in them from the start.
Cons: The opportunities to advance to partnership at this firm are few and far between. You might toil for years with paperwork and busy work that the senior lawyers throw at you. There are limits to the size of this firm's practice, so if you want to practice in a specialized area, you may need to look elsewhere for another opportunity.
