A dynamic environment with fast-paced projects and opportunities for continued growth...
Director (Current Employee), Washington, DCAugust 17, 2012
Pros: very good compensation and benefits. friendly work environment.
Cons: the pace of it project delivery, at times, creates a stressful environment.
Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP's IT operation is fast paced and provides many opportunities for technical growth and development.

Due to the fast pace, though, the work / life balance can be impacted if you don't actively work to keep it in balance.

Overall, this is a good place to develop your IT service delivery skills.
