Constant learning among outstanding colleagues characterize life at Bates White

3.9 of 5 stars

Entry-level in Economic | Washington, DC | 2015 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

The people, the culture, the projects

Downers

Occasionally projects can be slow

Comments

If you like rigorous analysis in a legal environment, Bates White is the place for you. Even if that's not your long-term goal, the work you do at Bates White will prepare you well for future opportunities. But be aware of the type of work we do, as it is very different from management consulting and requires different skills and a different mindset.

The work at Bates White challenges me to think critically and creatively every day.

Bates White is a fabulous place to work and I would highly recommend it! You will get exposure to many different industries; it involves a good mix of qualitative and quantitative elements; there are great benefits; and a great office culture.

challenging, diverse work, but unpredictable hours. need some serious self motivation and exploration to succeed in the long term.

The people and the flexibility and autonomy afforded to try to make the demanding schedule sustainable

Downers

Unpredictable and inconsistent hours

Comments

This is an extremely nurturing workplace. Some people come here and stay for a long time, others come and go back to school or transition to other industries. But everyone leaves much more empowered and capable than when they arrived. You will have a great deal of interesting work and responsibility, and your coworkers will inspire you and help you to make the most of those opportunities.

I look forward to seeing my coworkers every day.

The sometimes variable hours

Comments

I would highlight the firm culture (provided in a previous response), and how that makes it enjoyable to come to work every day. It's actually something that I look forward to in the morning.

The people are amazing and you will learn a ton.
