    I worked at Fenwick & West


    The environment was busy but not stressed. As with any position, you were always encouraged to be more productive without loosing accuracy. At the same time, you were given help to improve and it was just 'expected' of you to improve output from a previous review. Management was also aware that in some instances, production simple peeked.


    As with any law firm, due dates and time could change at the drop of the hat. Work schedules would need to change in those instances and you may need to work late or come in early.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to actually listen to staff and offer cross training within departments. Possibly encourage more transitions to other departments.

    Positive Outlook
