    I have been working at Hogan Lovells full-time

    Pros

    Management has its heart in the right place. Genuinely care about their staff & try to do right by their employees (doesn't always succeed). Fairly lax environment, relaxed dress code and casual Fridays. Onsite beer fridge is kept very well stocked. excellent close knit team, and very young demographic. Partners are all incredible and amazing bosses - look after the team and very understanding.

    Cons

    senior management team means well but is lacking in execution. Not willing to invest in staff and would rather cater to the more difficult, unproductive team members than finding a fair and equitable solution. Very few social/team activities - not willing to spend the time and money on team bonding and development. Very old-school working methods - don't expect agile or flexible working or WFH opportunities (unless there is a global pandemic.... but then you're right back in the office again)
