Totally inflexible, male dominated organization. Older male partners engage in outdated behavior including bullying associates, yelling and berating staff in public.

They don't want to compensate you and want to overwork you at the same time.

They respect hard work, and are flexible if you continue to work hard and meet your billable hours as attorneys.

    There is a lot of work to go around, so the job is less flexible because the work has to get done timely.

    Flexibility appears to be very specific to who you are working with; there are no formal telecommuting policies in place, but I know a number of people who have worked out part-time or full-time telecommuting situations with their supervisors. There is also an option for "balanced hours," so someone can formally reduce the numbers of billable hours required per year for a similar fraction of their "full" salary.

Great maternity leave policy, but it's nearly impossible to be a good parent and do everything they expect from you.

    There are no formal telecommuting policies, but I'm able to get things done re: home. If policies were in place, it would just make me less self conscious about it.
