There is no opportunity for advancement for anyone - man or woman and the benefits are awful.

The women in management positions in my department like to belittle and talk down to you, so tough skin is needed to work here.

Great benefits. Maternity leave for non-attorneys is 12 weeks at 100% pay followed by two months of part-time work (60% the first month, 80% the second month) at 100% pay. Attorneys have it even better, but I’m not sure of the specifics. Great culture; like a family. They will work with you to accommodate your life; as long as you can show them that you’re dedicated to meeting your billable hours with quality work. They really live up to being family friendly.

    12 paid / unpaid

    The girl also provides paternity leave. I believe it is 2 or 4 weeks with full pay but I’m not certain.

I would not waste your time. They are completely disorganized and have no desire to step up their game.

Management plays favorites. Depends on team. Flex time allowed; work from home frowned upon.

Perkins Coie

I've worked here for 4 years, and women are still primarily in support roles. About 19% of partners are women (around 30-35% of attorneys overall are women, I think). There are a lot of women in headquarters leadership, but most of them are not attorneys. Paid maternity leave is generous compared to other companies (although not necessarily other firms), but none of the attorneys I know took the full amount of time.
