    I have been working at McCarthy Tétrault full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's a highly collaborative, feedback-focused environment. Hierarchies aren't super rigid and I feel like I have a voice. The benefits are great based on my experience with other companies. The Toronto office is big so there could be a better sense of community but there are ongoing efforts to improve this (office events, committees, action groups, etc.). Other offices across Canada definitely have a "family vibe."

    Cons

    Because it's such a collaborative environment and everyone's opinion is considered, it can take a while to get new processes approved.
