100 Best Companies to Work For

Cooley

Cooley may be a powerhouse national law firm but a word employees bring up frequently is “fun.” Employees rave about a culture where karaoke matters as much as contracts, and where lawyers take time off to accompany underprivileged kids to Disney. The firm also takes diversity seriously and practices what it breaches—67% are women and 32% are minorities. Cooley is also committed to pro bono work, an important source of career satisfaction, and provides its lawyers with the resources to carry it out.
