    Pros

    Salary; they will just about hire anyone

    Cons

    No advancement; in order to work on the better matters, you need to really kiss up to the senior partners. The associates and non-exempt staff are treatly horribly. The firm is so cheap that you can't get a writing tablet or a box of pens to work with. However, the partners line their pockets with gold.

    Advice to Management

    Spread the wealth around and stop lining your pockets with gold. Gross misappropriate of funds in this firm.

  2. Miserable and corrupt firm don't waste your time

    Pros

    Co-workers - salary is better because they pay more in trying to get people to stay

    Cons

    Management discriminates against their employees; no advancement

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach and do not discriminate against employees. The firm offers no real advancement and if an employee makes any complaint, they will find themselves out the door - this firm discriminates against its employees as well. You would think being a law firm that they would follow the law and be more ethical but they are not. They are arrogant to the point that they believe they are above the law.

  3. Great place to work if you don't plan on using your skills.

    Pros

    Mostly friendly people. Good work location.

    Cons

    No career advancement. You spend all day everyday doing menial work. No sense in going to college to work here. Management only cares about attorneys.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize your paralegal's skills or continue to lose good people.

    Pros

    The best reasons to work for these weirdos are the location and salary.

    Cons

    If you want to take a trip back to high school and deal with cliques and kissing ass then this place is for you. The people are absolutely crazy. I've never worked somewhere like that before. I would avoid it at all costs.

    Advice to Management

    I would say something but my mom always told me not to say anything if you can't say something nice.
