Don't even think about showing initiative.

I worked at Burns & Levinson

ProsBoston firm, convenient location, pay's ok but not great, More pro's? um... it's got an elevator, and they don't make you walk up the stairs every day.

Consno encouragement, no desire to assist a team member's growth. Partners would rather pretend you're not there-- or at least that you're not their problem. HR is only there to support the corporate goals, not the individuals in the company. Expect both abuse and boredom.

Advice to Senior Managementtreat staff like they actually support your team. Encourage them to learn and grow, and for goodness' sake, say thank you once in a while.

Great experience but mixed messages from management

Associate (Former Employee)
Boston, MA

I worked at Burns & Levinson

ProsHigh level of responsibility and autonomy
Great benefits
Good quality of life
Exciting work
Great people to work with
Lots of client contact

ConsCompared to other firms, it is easy to feel undercompensated and unappreciated
Senior partners can stall your career on a whim
small bonuses compared to other firms of similar size

Advice to Senior ManagementRevise the review process and tie reviews and compensation together in the same discussion - as it is, compensation decisions are made and announced idependently from the review process which deprives the associates the opportunity to understand the connection between performance and compensation.
