Pros: free mcles done by partners who need their hours too.
Cons: terrible work environment
LBBS will require you to work long hours everyday, on the weekends, on leave, and on vacation. The partners have adopted the attitude that associates and staff are as disposable as a roll of paper towels. The compensation is also way below market rates, not transparent and not uniform (so people at the same level are often paid different salaries). The only way to make partner is be a partner at a small firm that is then absorbed by LBBS. Also each office is its own kingdom, you are not allowed to transfer from one office to another and the partners hate on each other for stealing associates from OC to SD or to LA. Also bonuses are discretionary even if you make your billable requirements, so if the partner you work for doesn't like you, then you won't get a bonus even though you billed the extra hours. Also no compensation or recognition if you bring in a case or a new client. It is common place to hear a partner screaming at staff on a daily basis.
