    Pros

    None. None. None. None.

    Cons

    The place is run by admins that don't understand the necessary details or importance of the employees jobs. Then they make lower level employees take the blame. The worst part is that this is common knowledge and everyone looks the other way, especially if they are not being blamed. The firm lost many excellent employees that cared about the work and showed the importance and the reasons why the details matter. Too bad the admins just care about budget and trying to stay under budget. The employees that are left are overwhelmed with double and triple duties/responsibilities and struggle with work/life balance until they are ultimately burned out. They also exclaim about diversity and then hire and treat most staff members poorly and the expectation has been that you should be grateful to be treated poorly. Forget about involving HR for assistance, since key members of the firm retired. HR routinely exclaims that if you have an issue, leave. Too bad the attorneys are not paying attention to staff and are not taking part in providing evaluations of the great staff members that are left. If the attorneys intervened the place might have a shot in becoming decent again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to prove a work/life balance for the staff and actually learn what each job responsibility and role has been designed to assist with everyday before giving a poor review to a staff member. Treat the staff like people that bleed with actual feelings. Stop taking for granted the remaining staff. The managing partner should meet with staff or provide an anonymous way for the staff to communicate the way they have been conditioned to take daily abuse from certain attorneys and all the HR reps. Bring Betty out of retirement!!!!!
