I have been working at Goodwin Procter

Pros

Fantastic people/culture with a good balance between work and personal time. There is also a vibrant social life in the office which is greatly facilitated by the lack of snooty and otherwise holier-than-thou attorneys which can be fairly commonplace in large corporate firms. The Real Estate practice is very highly regarded and the firm is expanding at an extraordinary pace.

Cons

It's Boston so the compensation levels are not the same as New York and the extent to which you're likely to pick up huge multinational clients with complex legal needs, while possible, is substantially decreased. This is offset, however, by smaller startups from the BioTech and Life Science mecca of Cambridge if you are interested in that area of law.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep it up. The expansion and branding initiatives have been a big boost to employees.

    Pros

    Great variety of work, excellent work, challenging transactions, variety of styles to learn from and training is superb.

    Cons

    There will not be much work life balance and favorites are chosen early but be aware of this early that you are playing in the big leagues. Always will have work but it is political.
