    I worked at Wilson Elser full-time

    Pros

    Good reputation in the insurance industry

    Cons

    They're always hiring for a reason. Lots of turnover. The billable hour expectation is at a biglaw level but the compensation is nowhere close, and you're nickel and dimed for every .1 hour. You're also set up to fail -- partners are hard to get a hold of and then play Monday morning quarterback on everything you do.
