associate Job Reviews
Women who are associates have an overall job satisfaction level of 3.5, 56.5% of them believe there is gender equality in their firms, and make an average salary range of $100k-$150k.
Long hours and lots of hard work, but if you are a hard worker you will generally be treated the same as hard working men - which is great.
Some inviduals might be sexist and we definitely notice it on the staffing of projects and the way they respect your point of view in a meeting. However, the guidelines from top management promote gender equality and there are a lot of good benefits (maternity leave).
Great place, team is super supportive. Love the flexibility offered in terms of work hours.
Young associates are under paid and over worked. Your success and happiness hinge on what team you work on.
Gender imbalance is not really the problem, the problem is a lack of a path to promotion or a path in general for senior associates. The firm could help itself by actively working to place associates in-house with clients, instead it acts hurt when attorneys leave to go anywhere else. Terrible long term thinking.
Negotiate your salary - they will absolutely low-ball you and you should really look to what you are worth or can get somewhere else.
There are not enough women at the top, but there are lots of women in the middle and the firm is working hard to get more women at the top.
No paid maternity leave. We only get 6 weeks of short term disability leave at 66% of your pay after you have been here a year.
fairness issues are not on management's radar.
