Getting to know Hogan Lovells
I was excited to learn about an opening in the Information Services Department. The nature of the position, including the technology being used, skills required, and role within the technical team, was a perfect fit. The prospect of working for this particular enterprise also appealed to me. Private firms are characteristically great employers, and the century-plus history of (what was then) Hogan & Hartson offered a measure of stability that would be hard to match.
I've found the work I'm presented with to be consistently challenging, and Hogan Lovells has never spared any expense in providing terrific opportunities for professional growth through technical education conferences and events. That is vital to those in the IT profession.
The atmosphere is a great blend of professionalism and camaraderie. The team I work with is one of the most culturally diverse groups imaginable. Our staff meetings resemble U.N. conferences. If we have one commonality though, it is that everyone is an expert in their field; no matter whom you're working with, you never need to doubt their knowledge or capability.
Hogan Lovells is always sponsoring worthy charitable activities, from donation drives at the office to participation in marathons and similar events outside the office. Many of the departments regularly organize informal social events, such as potlucks. All of this offers a wide variety of opportunities for team building, regardless of one's interests.
The atmosphere is really set from the top. I'm often surprised when managers of large departments — even those separate from my own — know my name and say hello in the hallway.
Ian has found that challenging projects and the opportunity to attend educational conferences and events have provided a rich environment for professional development.
