Advice to law firm management: If this firm is the right fit for you, be prepared for a rigorous hiring process and a very long work week. But the rewards may be worth it.
Pros: This firm does not hire associates who will not represent the firm well in every possible setting. Only the best will be selected to work here. You might find that your paycheck is quite large indeed, but it will come at the cost of plenty of work and hours.
Cons: You may find it's hard to advance here. There is a corporate environment in the workplace, which means individuality is not part of the scheme. Not everyone will enjoy this. You may also need to work in an area of the law that you do not find interesting.
