    I have been working at Littler Mendelson


    Whether or not this is a good company is dependent on a number of factors. With offices all over the world, the dynamics in each office can vary. As a support person, I had the opportunity to interact with different offices. Some are better than others. This is a company that prides itself on diversity. There are many good things about working for this company.


    Management in the IT department has been in turmoil for several years. There has been a loss of some really good people and some hiring decisions that are questionable. The review process is a little strange and outdated. Also, there seems to be a mentality that no one is perfect so rarely is one given a top number, regardless of their work. So two people can get a similar review and a similar raise (or no raise depending on the year) and yet one worked much harder than the other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overhaul the review process. One size does not fit all. Eliminating all of your good workers for a move is going to take a lot of time to recover, because an entirely new staff is going to take time to learn the systems and processes. If you're going to do a mass move, you should do it in phases and not do a relo to a cheaper city to lower your salary base all at once.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Littler Mendelson in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I received an invite to a panel interview a month after applying online. I met with several shareholders individually, then a group of associates together. I thought it went well. It took about a month to hear back, but they had said it would take a while so I was not surprised. They asked me for another writing sample which I submitted right away. A month or so after that, I got a rejection email. I responded by politely asking for constructive feedback but my request was met with silence. It's too bad because I really wanted to work here and would have liked to get some feedback that would allow me to apply at a later date.
