    I worked at Norton Rose Fulbright full-time

    Pros

    Extremely supportive work environment. Got rid of my pre-conception of commercial law firms as being ogres that just want to bite your head off.

    Can't really say much honestly - only worked for one practice majority of the time.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Norton Rose Fulbright full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Managed to get out relatively unscathed.

    Cons

    Most toxic and nasty place I have ever worked. Bullying at all levels rife. Ill equipped and poor facilities. HR incompetent and will turn on you in a heartbeat. They do not have your back and it is not in any way safe to speak to them about anything. Pay under market rate or if you go in on a decent wage don't expect an increase. All they are worried about is billings. Salt Mine. You will absolutely regret it if you take a job here.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Norton Rose Fulbright full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good work, mostly good people, mostly collegiate and friendly. Your experience will be largely based on your individual team. Some are absolutely brilliant. Some are not.

    Cons

    Pay not really at market. People were "mostly" good. There were some people who acted in an objectionable manner for any professional workplace, and others who were professionally poor or incompetent.
