Looks good on a CV but toxic work environment
Associate (Former Employee) –  Sydney31 March 2019
Very old school law firm, based on the idea that the partners are like overlords and everyone else is there to serve them.
If you're under 6 years qualified, you're seen more like office equipment then a human being.
Partner didn't respect me as a person and I thought I was to be available 24/7 to suit his every whim. After it became obvious that the work wasn't urgent but rather I was slaving to make the partner look good, I moved on to another firm.
If you want to work in a very old school law firm that doesn't have much innovation then this is right for you.
Pros
Looks good on a CV, opens doors, 5 weeks leave
Cons
Long hours, toxic work environment, competitors offer better deals
