Advice to law firm management: Look to other firms in the Silicon Valley through an internal audit on how small quality of life problems can be improved.

Pros: Gunderson Dettmer is full of intelligent partners and associates that put each other

Cons: The firm has been around for quite a long time, so there are some internal processes that are outdated that could be improved.

Since our Firm's inception in 1995, we have continually looked for new and creative ways to be good "Corporate Citizens." Our broad range of financial contributions have included more traditional organizations such as the American Heart Association, the American Cancer Society and Second Harvest Food Bank to lesser known organizations like the Children's Health Council, Peninsula Youth Theater, Junior Achievement of Silicon Valley and Today's Youth Matters. Although we have made a broad range of contributions, we maintain a special emphasis on youth-related programs that encourage and educate our future leaders.
