    If You Enjoy Gladiatorial Combat With Your Co-Workers Then This Is Your Place

    Attorney (Former Employee)

    ProsThey have a nice incentive system to make up for the lack of pay you will receive as an attorney.

    No maternity leave.

    You will eventually be paid after the Partners take most of your money, so if you like making money and being altruistic and giving it to others, then take this job.

    Happy hour on Friday.

    ConsLegal staff, stay far away from this place as possible. The dichotomy between attorneys and support staff is the worse I have ever seen. Gladiatorial combat will likely break out at one point - not kidding.

    Paralegals be prepared to be a secretary and answer the phone, you will not receive actual work.

    Hostile work environment.

    No mentorship. Be prepared to learn everything yourself and ask an equally non-trained attorney for advice.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere are 15 Partner Level attorneys out of 35 attorneys. Only 10 Associates with the rest being B and C class share holders - I have never seen a more top heavy management system ever.

    Actually prove people are competent for their positions. White hair does not equal knowledge. Attorneys unable to use computers properly (i.e. Word) is inexcusable.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
