    I worked at Akerman Senterfitt

    Pros

    Very strong in M&A in the Florida market

    Cons

    Office culture and work-life balance at the senior level is not optimum. The Firm wants to build a national platform but is limited on resources in human capital and market reach to do so. Top Firm for Florida matters however.

    Former Employee - Legal Administrative Assistant in Orlando, FL

    I worked at Akerman Senterfitt part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was given the freedom to tackle projects with my own tactics and was rewarded with trust and additional responsibilities for my strong personal initiative.

    Cons

    I found many of the secretaries to be terrible gossips and unappreciative of the positive work environment the firm worked hard to create.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't treat the trite gossip of your staff as the "price of doing business" as a law firm. Let them go and bring in people who are truly there to support you.

    I worked at Akerman Senterfitt full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very professional environment, well structured, organized. Christmas bonus is a great perk, PTO is 3+ weeks the first year. Many other perks throughout the year, the company seems to care quite a bit about its employees.

    Cons

    Since admin office moved to Maitland from downtown, the staff turnaround has increased. Some people like to gossip and engage in company politics, so i'd advise to keep your head down and not get involved at all because it will backfire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improved work-life balance for accountants would be great!
