The company's culture both in the office and after hours is consistent - everyone is intelligent, personable, interesting and friendly. The structure and hierarchy seems to vary across different practice groups but I certainly get the feel that a 'flatter' structure is encouraged. Cooperation and teamwork is strongly encouraged, with lawyers from different practice groups often working with each other on the same matter. A collegiate environment is fostered with the new rooms and facilities making group work much easier in the new office. The employees here are also very social people - whether it's impromptu Thursday night drinks or a firm-wide organised event, many people are always keen to have a good time and to get to know their colleagues on more personal level.
