Work Life Winner: Weil Gotshal Launches Flex-Time Partnerships
We never thought we'd see the day that we named Weil Gotshal a "Work Life Winner." But even the hardest working, white shoe firms are starting to come around to the need to boost retention rates by offering flexible working arrangements. In this vein, Weil Gotshal announced last week that it named 20 new partners - two of whom are "Flex-Time Partners," a new partnership category formed for new partners making a long-term career choice to work on a flexible schedule. The "Flex-Time Partner" title is available to both women and men entering the partnership. See the full press release here.
BTW, seems Weil has its PR engine on full throttle - some may recall that it was 4 Weil Gotshal associates -- Mandy Price Brown, Brian D’Amico, Brittany Perez, and Ben Bodamer -- who made an appearance in a New York Times photo earlier this year accompanying an article on rising associate salaries (see prior post here).
