Project Attorney (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 20, 2017
A typical day at work consists on reviewing contracts/e-mails/etc. for relevant material to the case matter that you are assigned. It is not especially challenging work, but the workplace culture is chill, and they are usually very hands off. You are expected to bill a certain number of hours, but they will work with you if you have unexpected life problems etc.

The firm has a strong commitment to community initiatives, through monetary giving, pro bono work and volunteerism, and personnel is encouraged to participate in community activities (which is very important to me).
Senior Attorney (Current Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – October 14, 2016
K&S is a great firm, well established and full of smart people. The Silicon Valley practice is subject to massive ebbs and flows in workload that can be atypical. The office is experiencing growth pangs.
N/A (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 20, 2016
K&S provides a busy and continuously changing environment, providing little-to-no work life balance. A typical work day will include performing job tasks for the entirety of the day, with little to no interactions.The hardest part of working with K&S is the micro-management. However, the location of the company does allow opportunity to enjoy the finer aspects of atlanta.
Legal Assistant - Litigation Department (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 17, 2016
I worked at K&S for a total of 15 years. I was privileged to work with many wonderful attorneys who appreciated my dedication and loyalty and took good care of me in return. What I learned was the value of good relationships, hard work, and reliability. The hardest part of my job was that I am meant to be a counselor, not a legal assistant, and because of that, didn't find a sense of meaning and purpose in my work. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people with whom I worked.
Project Attorney (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 15, 2015
Working as a Project Attorney was here was awful. When I was hired, I wasn't told that I would be working mandatory 50 hour work weeks-- this included weekend work. Fifty hour work weeks and weekend work sprang up often without notice. Management was also pretty bad. Many of the staff and senior staff attorneys did not know how to speak to those working for them and were unnecessarily rude and condescending. Now add that on to long hours and you have a recipe for going insane. Don't make a single mistake either-- you'll be blacklisted and pushed out.
If you really, really need cash and decide to go here to do doc review, make sure you have a quick exit strategy.
The King & Spalding name, constant work for the most part
Horrible management, no room for advancement, minimal PTO, no consideration for personal/weekend plans
Great place to work, Received my best experience in Accounting here. Senior Management was Top Notch.

Manager, Reception Department (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – June 15, 2012
An awesome place to work. I was eager to arrive early and stay late to get the job done. Upper management was responsive to the needs of mid management. I learned that King and Spalding has a strong comittment to volunteering in the community and that committment encouraged me to volunteer in my spare time. The hardest part of my job was leaving and the most enjoyable was the attitude of cooperativeness I received from many of the staff.
professional environment, welcoming office space and furniture.
some seasoned members of the team were not always cooperative
Paralegal (Former Employee) – Los Angeles – April 4, 2012
The Los Angeles office was opened in 2011. Staff having a difficult time being part of the San Francisco office. Management leaves you alone to do your job. Good, bright, young attorneys. Nice place to work. I would love to have stayed but I was only there covering a maternity leave.
