Great place to work for staff
I can't speak to what it's like to be a lawyer at DLA Piper, but staff is well compensated and we get the benefit of working in a law firm with all attendant perks. But they are paring staff down the the bone!
If you are lucky enough to get a job there, you will find the staff to be highly competent and professional. Benefits are generous.
Nice setting, professional colleagues
You can be a fantastic worker but they still might cut you in the next round of layoffs.
