Project Assistant (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – August 26, 2018
If you are choosing to work at this firm it will require a lot of commitment. Task can come at at any time. Many times expect to receive assignments at the last minute. If you are well balanced then you will do fine.
Operations Specialist (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – April 4, 2018
I enjoyed working at Dentons. It is a productive, fast-paced work environment. The overall culture was friendly, but could be stressful at times. Salary could have been more competitive with other law firms of the same size in the area.
Managing Associate (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – January 24, 2018
The hours requirement is very high. My old firm merged and was paying a lot more which meant raises and bonuses were barely anything at Dentons. When we merged we were basically told we had to work harder and get paid less.
Senior Accountant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 11, 2017
working with fellow coworker was great. everyone is so helpful and friendly. working with management was another story. working there was stressful. did not know if you were going to be working for long since management was reducing employment
Great place to work, people are fantastic and professional.
Senior Project Manager (Consultant) (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 6, 2017
Although everyone is over allocated, everyone finds time to make light and make the workday seem shorter. I learned how to remain calm and professional in the face of stress. The culture is that chaos rules and no project lasts more than 30 days even if the scope tells a different story. The hardest part of the job is teaching others that project management will make their lives easier.
The corporate folks are fun; the litigators are two-faced
Contract Attorney (Former Employee) – Short Hills, NJ – April 25, 2017
I worked as a Contract Attorney and was promised a substantive evaluation when one of the Associates came back from maternity leave. When she came back, no substantive review and my hours dried up so I was making nothing.
Big name firm
Dysfunctional law firm masquerading as a big name firm
Typical Work Day: Extremely high volume, must be able to multi-task. Always high volume of calls, booking meetings, ordering food, client relations and much more. Must have proper communication and organizational skills.
IT Project Manager (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – April 3, 2017
Often long days and weekends worked. Good compensation and a very good company to work for. With such a fast pace and very large growth pattern the work load must be self regulated but management is not over bearing on this aspect.
IP Project Coordinator/Paralegal (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – March 2, 2017
Merger occurred shortly after I took position. What a mess - so unorganized. small group of us moved while rest of firm was scheduled to move 8 months later (meantime we had to work on 2 separate computer system) it was a nightmare

paralegal (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – January 6, 2016
This firm is a pleasure to work for. The firms environment is relaxed and laid back. Co-workers are exceptionally great to work with. Difficulties include keeping up with changes due to mergers with different firms. Enjoyable aspects include the tools provided by the firm to be productive, the brand of the firm and job security.
Trademark Paralegal (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 6, 2015
Fun work place with supportive management. Not all about the numbers, but how you personally grow and develop. Decent amount of red tape and politics, but this is expected of a big company. The most enjoyable part of the job was working along side my colleagues and learning from them. The office started to crowded as the company grew.
