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

Shearman & Sterling is a global law firm that has been in business for over 150 years. From the reviews of those who have worked at the firm, it appears to have a mostly positive atmosphere, with employees feeling valued and treated fairly by the non-leadership and non-C-suite staff. The newly renovated office is well-appointed and offers a range of amenities, such as a free coffee shop, high-tech cafeteria and conference center. The salary and benefits offered are also competitive.

However, it is not all positive. Reviews suggest that the Leadership and C-Suite team are not as supportive of their staff, with employees feeling underappreciated and undervalued. There is also a toxic atmosphere at the top, with a sweep everything under the rug mentality. The insurance premiums are also high, and staff are expected to work outside of regular business hours.

Overall, from these reviews, it seems that Shearman & Sterling has a mostly positive atmosphere and offers competitive salaries and benefits, but that there is room for improvement in its leadership and C-Suite team. It is also important to note that there have been recent lay-offs, mainly impacting business staff. Those considering working for the firm should bear this in mind.
