Top-down commitment to progression of women to long term roles including partner. Meaningful leadership roles available to associates. Offers generous/market-based leave and flexible work programs. Above all, exceptional quality of lawyering is required in the long run.
I've worked here for a little over 3 years. Generally, morale is pretty good but the hours are very long and unpredictable. It is easy to get burnt out. This is generally the case with most big law firms. The company has outreach programs for women but is primarily male-dominated. The maternity leave is very generous.

I believe this is a good firm as far as "Big Law" firms are concerned. Expect to work a lot of hours and be on call all the time. I probably wouldn't recommend it for women with children unless you are comfortable with the long hours.
