Those that made the list include Arnold & Porter and Covington & Burling both in Washington, DC, Katten, Muchin, Rosenman in Chicago, and Pillsbury, Winthrop, Shaw, Pittman in New York. Companies are rated in seven areas including, workforce profile, compensation, child care, flexibility, time off and leaves, family-friendly programs and company culture.
