"High face-time requirement, partners roam the halls to see when people come in and leave. Working from home results in email from HR. Flex-time not allowed till 4/5th year. Most associates have office-mates and closing office door is frowned upon."

"This may be a good place to work for women who are willing to make their job their first priority, but it will never be appropriate if the goal is a healthy work-life balance. To be fair, I am sure this could apply to any "biglaw" firm."

"there are a lot of women working here, but few at the top. Generally I believe they are treated fairly but management is male-dominated and not diverse, which makes it tougher for women to "network" with them. Mid-level women don't seem to advance because of these subtle issues. Also, while maternity leave is generous here I think women are judged harshly by some colleagues and managers for taking the full time. The firm makes it difficult to pump at work (for attorneys). Flex time is discouraged in some practice groups. The training is fantastic, but the time sacrifice can be enormous."

"One must sacrifice time outside the office (for oneself, family, etc) for the work at all times, if one wants to succeed there."
