    Pros

    It's a well known plaintiff's firm to some in the bay area. Might look good on your resume.

    Cons

    The firm pays low base salaries to everyone, and they claim to make it up with a hyped-up bonus. But sometimes there is NO BONUS! And whatever bonus there is, it definitely does not make up for the fact that they do not pay overtime. Instead of paying overtime to us non-exempt workers, they just work us to death, even on Saturdays. Everyone (staff, attorneys, etc) is REQUIRED to bill at least 200 hours a month. Everyone comes in at least 2 Saturdays a month. People put in their time and then quit for greener pastures. It's a sweatshop with a revolving door. They also make new paralegals sign a "contract" stating that we pledge to work here x number of years (usually 2). This is the firm's way of manipulating you into thinking that you have legal obligation to stay, when you don't.

    Promotions are not fair or sensible. The firm rewards personal connections and seniority, not merit. Management puts their money into propping up their image, not into their people.

    Building is very ugly and office decor is from 1970s.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating people like they're expendable.
