    I have been working at Linklaters full-time

    Pros

    Energized working environment with many advancement opportunities and interesting work. Collegiate and fun culture, while remaining respectful and inclusive. Management has a clear direction/strategy. Very competitive compensation/benefits package.

    Cons

    Unpredictable working hours and demanding clients (but also what makes the job interesting). Can be a bit too bureaucratic at times.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push associates to participate in business development activities. Continue to be transparent in respect of the firm's goals and strategy. Consider whether certain processes can be streamlined.
