    Pros

    Great people. Competitive pay. Lower rates so more attracitve to in house counsel. Pull very smart lawyers from bigger firms and offer same service and value at a lower rate- Very smart! Benefits are good- Employee matched 401K up to 6%.

    Cons

    Bi annual reviews were too much! Management keeps close track of how everyone is doing.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the bi-annual reviews. Once a year is enough. Really focus on grooming mid level associates for shareholdership.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Winstead.

    Interview

    Interviewed with an entire team. Was offered the job within two weeks but process took longer because I had to move and needed more time. They were very understanding and cooperative. The interview itself was intense as I interviewed with a lot of people from different sections. All were very nice and welcoming and revealed a lot about themselves and their practice areas. Each told me how I could fit in

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Back and forth but never far apart.
