The pay and opportunities for growth are fantastic. The firm places a high premium on professional development for all its employees.

Downers

Once or twice a year, there is a period where hours are inflexible and personal life has to be put on hold to a certain degree. The firm is very transparent about this at all times and it is common in economic consulting, but it's a downside.

Advice to Candidates

Ask about the culture and dedication to investing in its employee's professional development. Bates White places an extremely high emphasis on both and it sets it apart from its competitors.

Advice to Candidates

A candidate should check how much is a firm willing to invest in her career development, what are the opportunities for growth, and what the firm's leadership thinks about internal growth as opposed to growing through acquisition of other firms.

As good as it gets!

Advice to Candidates

While Bates White may not be the most prestigious firm, it is a great place to work for many reasons. If you pick up a newspaper on any given day, you will likely read about many of our cases. These range from mega-mergers to high-profile litigation cases. There is a lot of variety in the types of cases we work on, but the cases are all very interesting and engaging. What really sets Bates White apart is its culture. The Bates White leadership is 100% dedicated to employee satisfaction and work life balance. Given the smaller size of the firm (~200 people), the culture is very collegial and fun. There are many opportunities for promotion and career advancement. I would highly recommend Bates White to anyone.

Improve yourself, have fun, and do good work in the process.
