    Pros

    Forget any cliches you might have on law firms - McCarthy Tetrault is the type of firm you've been dreaming to work for - management cares for its employees, and a provides a friendly work environment

    Cons

    This is not a con - rather a BUT: of course there is a lot of work to do and the expectations are high but employees are always rewarded for their continued efforts

    Advice to Management

    Keep on taking care of your people the way you do - this definitely makes all the difference.
