    - salaries are a tad lower than competitors

    - favoritism exists which result in staff thinking they are privileged
    - promotions from staff to senior are based in impressions rather than actual work results
    - results of committee (partner and manager) meetings are not regularly discussed with staff
    - marketing is weak; firm is not known other than in the labor union arena

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to all employees' complaints and suggestions (speak to each employee rather than doing it as a group); improve the mentoring program; communicate regularly to the firm staff about important firm initiatives and events; have a real flex work schedule option
