    I worked at Bracewell & Giuliani part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Honestly, Bracewell is a real second tier firm. In both reputation and true quality, there are at least a dozen Houston offices that are better. Still, the name still carries some weight in the energy business; f you can't get hired by a better firm, spending a few years here may help you move on to an in house job with a compay in that sector.

    Cons

    In my experience, the focus was relentlessly on increasing revenue--by any means necessary. The firm was very aggressive about conflict issues and I have concerns about the firm's overall ethics. When lateral attorneys came in, it was common for the firm to try to get between the new lawyers and the clients they brought in; this makes sense when you realize how many laterals leave in less than five years. "Harvesting" their clients is quite common.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to reward cooperation and punish predatory actions. Also, reduce the "cult of personality" attached to leadership (e.g., in litigation, lawyers are divided into two groups, each of which is named after the partner who heads it).
