    Pros

    People are great for the most part.

    Working through some issues

    I have been working at Dickstein Shapiro

    Pros

    Stable, and some well-recognized groups. Folks are generally nice, but sometimes unwilling to confront the problems.

    Cons

    Poor communication from management; the usual big-law work-life balance (or lack thereof). Bad press this year.

    I have been working at Dickstein Shapiro full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent training opportunities, compensation was nothing to sneeze at (very competitive), benefits were equally competitive.

    Cons

    Working at Dickstein Shapiro felt very much to be in a "family" environment, until the managing partner, Angelo Arcadipane, left and Mike Nannes took the position. This change, coupled with the growth of the firm through mergers and acquisitions, proved this to no longer be the case. The feeling of being part of a "team" effort was lost to the majority being out for "themselves".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a grip!

    This used to be a great place to work but the top leadership has changed and nobody believes in the core values anymore.

    I have been working at Dickstein Shapiro

    Pros

    Tough to say now. I really like my manager but I feel like all the good managers are leaving.

    Cons

    Top leadership isn't communicating with staff. We usually get raises in July but they said they were deferring raises until December. None of us feel like we're getting the real story.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention when the best managers leave because the staff isn't far behind them.
