Fantastic fee earners, collegial peers, suboptimal BD leadership
Manager (Current Employee) –  Anonymous7 July 2017
The lawyers at Baker McKenzie are top quality -- professionally and personally. There is a reason most trainees never leave. Unfortunately, the practice support side is not well managed. Led by a BDM Head who is guilty of both overt favouritism and political machination, the team has seen a haemorrhaging of top talent recently, and will need to take active measures to retain quality people. Advancement is based on an opaque system where it depends heavily on being in favour with business support leadership. Quality of performance and peer reviews mean little if the person at the top doesn't like you personally. NOT a way to run a business and the lawyers deserve MUCH better.
Pros
Fantastic, dynamic and top quality fee earners
Cons
Poor BD management
