What are the best and worst things about your company?
- The nature of the firm: employees can feel involved whether it is taking on early responsibility or being exposed to an internal policy meeting about the importance of work life balance and how to achieve that.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Dechert is one of the best law firms in the world when it comes to financial services, hence the nature of clients and transactions is quite high-profile. The firm is also known to maintain a friendly atmosphere and is quite committed to pro-bono work.As it is customary in the industry, there are people who still value face time. Long working hours and the absence of a broader mentality that you can work remotely by making use of technology. Everything is printed out in order to be read - there is no conscience for being good to trees!

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Everyone at the firm is very friendly and the client base, especially in Financial Services, is second to none. I work closely with senior associates and partners and I am given lots of responsibility on important matters, such as drafting key documents in a transaction or litigation.Sometimes the hours are long and the work can be time pressured or stressful but that is typical of any firm at this level in this industry.
