Pros: I enjoyed working at the firm. For me, I enjoy working at a place where I am part of a team taking on tough challenges, where my input is sought after and appreciated, and where my relationships with my colleagues extend outside the office. I certainly felt that in several ways at HansonBridgett. Below are the moments that speak to either of those:- when Jim would check-in on my even though we don't directly work together- when the managing partner at the time, Andrew Giacomini asked how my family was doing during COVID (I had lost two family members at that time and his concern was meaningful)- when several attorneys at the Sacramento office would ask me about my aspirations of going to law school and give me solid advice- having the ability to take ownership of my own work, and finding ways to be more efficient- being trusted with more responsibility- becoming close friends with the secretaries such that I would often house/dog sit for them

Cons: While HansonBridgett does champion itself as diverse, there were moments where my appearance was subject to unnecessary comments. For example, I overheard a colleague say that I didn't look like someone who worked at a law firm, albeit I was always dressed in a buttoned shirt, slacks, and loafers. I heard a colleague read a xenophobic social media post during small-talk that wasn't directed towards me, but was still hurtful to hear. Those statements bothered me because it gave the impression that no matter how I dressed or how hard I worked, I was still reduced to a physical characteristic that I had no control over. These moments were rare, but its impact still lingers.

Partners to Avoid and Why: None.
