Advice to law firm management: Everyone needs a job, and nobody wants to be scared of losing the one they have. Leadership should be more transparent about things when they let someone go.
Pros: There are a lot of smart lawyers walking around in this firm, so it's a great place for new associates to learn. Partners are pretty accessible and everyone is generally supportive and willing to help out.
Cons: There seems to be a general consensus that the job stability here is not good. Many people live in constant fear of being downsized. I've seen it happen a few times, but I'm not sure why.
