      Pros

      This is top global law firm, which treats its employees with respect, integrity and honesty. During this global pandemic their true colors have really shown, in terms of how they have provided support to their employees, yet still delivering high quality services to their clients. The organization has not just sustained itself during this pandemic, but has actually grown the business.

      Cons

      None that I can think of, other than if you want to join a top level global law firm this is the place to be.
