They need to improve the staffing situation. It would lead to fewer hours worked for every attorney, and it would improve mentoring. If they promoted up more it would also lead to more associates staying.

Pros : Some Room for Improvement, but a Good Firm to Work for
Cons : Many areas are definitely understaffed. The management is generally unwilling to promote, which is leading to the issue of there not being enough senior associates around to train new junior associates. It's lead to me working more hours than I would want. It has led to junior associates leaving for other firms.
Current or former employee? : Current Employee

Summer associate program

The summer program is a gateway for entry of new lawyers at Proskauer. It has remained so for more than 30 years and for many of its current partners, Proskauer was the first firm to begin their career. Proskauer Rose offers a 10-week summer program in most of its domestic offices. The program is considered as an all-around 'great' experience. Summer associates are expected to complete 6 to 15 assignments during the summer.

The summer program includes periodic seminars and other activities, like participation in a cross-examination workshop, a corporate negotiation workshop, a legal ethics seminar, and a litigation workshop, all of which are designed to develop practice skills, provide insights into substantive legal issues and impart the basics of various practice areas.

The firm made offers to 88% of its 2009 summer associates.

Working for the Proskauer Rose LLP.

Many believe that Proskauer provides a cordial and enjoyable atmosphere. Young associates have lots of opportunity to take responsibility for cases early and to learn quickly if they take advantage of the opportunities. Proskauer has a great balance of tradition and progressiveness.

A few concerns include management decisions at times can be somewhat murky. Also, associates believe that the firm overloads with hours targets, which may lead to a stressful job.

"We believe that challenging our workforce to participate, grow and contribute ideas helps to make this an exciting and successful environment that benefits the firm, our people and our clients," the firm states on its website.
