For the third consecutive year, Fortune has named Orrick to its list of 100 Best Companies to Work For. Orrick ranks among the top third of companies for our workplace culture and is one of only 5 law firms to make the 2018 list.
“Our clients count on us to field top talent and consistent, diverse teams,” said Mitch Zuklie, Chairman and CEO of Orrick. “That’s why being a best place to work is fundamental to our strategy, and why we are innovating to attract, retain and inspire both lawyer and staff talent.”
In 2017 the firm focused on developing talent programs that deliver early responsibility for our lawyers; small, diverse teams; industry leading agile working options; innovative training programs; and opportunities for lawyers and staff to make a meaningful social impact. Members of our team reported to Fortune that the firm is “a truly collaborative place where entrepreneurism and innovation are valued.”
Fortune partners with the Great Place to Work Institute to select the list by conducting the most extensive employee survey in corporate America. Two-thirds of a company's score is based on an in-depth employee survey. The balance focuses on an extensive 'culture audit' of each company, which includes a detailed analysis of pay and benefit programs, hiring practices, diversity efforts, internal communications, training, recognition and local community support.
