BCG Attorney Search speaks with attorneys about law firms every day. Here is what attorneys are saying:

atribes from partners.

McKool Smith is a law firm with offices in multiple cities and states across the United States. Reviews of the firm from attorneys and others who have worked there paint a picture of a firm that has a lot to offer. It has a friendly office atmosphere, a flexible remote policy, and pays top of the market wages. Associates can try out different practice areas and have access to excellent mentorship opportunities and great support staff. The firm also offers attractive benefits including profit sharing, tuition reimbursement and transit stipends.

The negatives are that the headquarters is in Dallas, and the cost of living there is not taken into account for all offices. Work life balance is lacking and business development hours are not counted as billable. Associates also report feeling like cogs in a machine, long hours, unorganized management and structure, underappreciated staff, high turnover, and diatribes from partners.

Overall, the reviews of McKool Smith indicate that it is a well-respected law firm with some great benefits and opportunities, but that there are also some drawbacks that should be taken into consideration. The firm has a friendly atmosphere, a flexible remote policy and a collegial environment, but the long hours and lack of work life balance can be a challenge. It is up to the individual to decide if the benefits outweigh the negatives when considering employment at McKool Smith.
