Advice to law firm management: There are a lot of great benefits if you are an intern or employee and I advise you to try them. I advise you to share your work to maintain your work-life balance.

Pros: Kutak Rock LLP is a fast growing organization and everyone is very competitive. It is a great organization and you will be having lots of opportunities to learn new things. They invest time and effort in their employees and you will rarely fear of losing your job. Everyone had great energy and the work environment was very positive.

Cons: Attorney's may be good or bad depending on the individual's personality. Work life balance was a real challenge for me due to high amount of work.
