Cooley, LLP was a great place to work. I worked in the Reston, Virginia office. The location of the office was great in the center of the town, with access to all kinds of restaurants and amenities.
The culture was very laid back, this is a California based law firm and the culture reflected that.
The management was very diligent to make sure that the company was protected from changes in the economy by making sure they had a very diverse client base, which insured that if one client moved to another law firm, it didn't affect the company in any large way.
I enjoyed working at Cooley, and only left to move to North Carolina.
Great culture, great place to work, great benefits.
