    I worked at Baker Botts full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My partner-level bosses were pretty great. Fun personalities, yet still very professional. We're very encouraging and committed to developing employee talent. I know not all partners were like that, but mine were.

    Cons

    Staff is very gossip oriented. Rumors started over nothing or simple jealousy. Very catty, dog-eat-dog. Very hard to know who your friends were. People actively trying to get one another fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that work productivity is affected when staff managers are allowed to fraternize with the people they are in charge of.
