McDermott Will & Emery was an excellent law firm, I had the priveledge of working with wonderful attorneys, management and staff.
Pros: the diversity of my job and that i was given increased responsibilites.
Cons: working with the home office in chicago and the time differences in the 13 offices.
My day varied which may have included handling various facility issues, employee issues, or ensuring that I made all deadlines on reports.
I enhanced my negotiation skills, working with various vendors and negotiating lower costs.
My co-workers were supportive and a joy to work with from attorneys to staff across 13 offices in the firm,.
The hardest – more... part of the job was prioritizing my duties, but found I was very successful at accomplishing these tasks.
The most enjoyable part were the people. I interacted with management, attorneys, and staff on a daily basis and had gained knowledge from each person. – less
