Women's Job Satisfaction (5=very satisfied)
Very few senior women. Men are generally respectful, but there is a boys' club vibe to the department (all bonding conversations revolve around sports). Get pregnant before making partner at your own risk. Maternity leave policies are generous and in line with other large law firms. To demonstrate commitment to the work and to show ambition, be prepared to work long hours or look like you are working long hours. Stray from the track to partnership for any period (maternity, sabbatical, etc) will likely cost you your chances at partnership.

One Thing Employer Could Improve
Recommend to Women?
Maybe. I have received quality work but there is a boys' club vibe to the department. Too much sports talk and too few senior women. Culture of working long hours for the sake of long hours.
