I like the work that I do and the people I do it with

Downers

Expectation of living to work rather than work to live

I think Bates White gets economic consulting right, but as with most client-services jobs, there will be deadlines that require long hours.

Rigor and thougt-provoking analysis

Downers

Lack of perks and inability to work remotely

Comments

I think that a candidate should know that they are interested in working in litigation consulting. The main reason that I am looking for a new job is that I do not wish to work in this field and would rather do strategy consulting or work in industry as a product manager or product analyst.

Bates White leadership talks big, delivers medium

The hours

Comments

Come here to learn because there is a ton to be learned from the work and the people. Be ready for extremely unpredictable hours. Take everything management says with a grain of salt.
