    I worked at Baker Botts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Well run, likable attorneys and excellent professional staff for the most part. Bonuses and profit sharing are generous, especially when the firm is doing well.

    Cons

    It's all about Houston. If you are senior staff, you must live there. The other offices can feel like outposts. Healthcare is not very well subsidized; high compared with other firms.

    Advice to Management

    As a firm that aspires to be national/international, there needs to be less emphasis on Houston and the recognition that the best people may not want to reside there but can still contribute significantly toward the success of the firm.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Baker Botts (Houston, TX (US)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I got this interview through a recruiter. The people involved with hiring for this position were unavailable so I met with one person who is kind of the head of HR for the firm. This is the person to impress otherwise you won't get any further. I spent only about 10-15 minutes with this individual and got negative feedback from my recruiter from her that I was "too chatty."
