"Experiences of working mothers here vary wildly - a lot depends on your particular office/practice area/supervisors. I personally have had a positive experience as a working mother of two young kids, both born while I was working here, but my compensation is lower than that of my male peers, even those with young kids, because bonuses are pro-rated for parental leaves."

"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."
