    Top-notch law firm experiencing some mild growing pains moving from a small firm to a large firm.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe people are phenominal! They are the very best at what they do. Reputable, ethical, experienced, and successful product liability defense firm.

    ConsThe firm is operated like a business, but ocassionally at the expense of the attorneys and staff when work slows (which happens from time to time in a cyclical business like law.) Although it is appropriate to right-size as necessary, once in a while a less-talented tenured employee will be retained while new promising talent is let go. That being said, the firm does take such decisions very seriously and values its people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompensation structure is geared toward longevity instead of work product and merit, which may contribute to tenured employees putting forth less effort to remain abreast of current skill. The firm is sometimes unable to capture top talent because of average-level salary and benefits.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    This is a wonderful company to start off your career as a paralegal.

    Paralegal (Former Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    ProsThey treat you like family which is a wonderful feeling.

    ConsThe only issue is when it's slow you have to look for work in other groups within the firm. This firm won't help you obtain those billables it's up to you. If you don't make this hours you might be the one the let go if the firm isn't doing well that year.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBefore you let someone go you should look at the previous years on how many hours that paralegal billed and don't hire family members.
