Pros – No one on your case about face time, checking in on you. The office dress was fairly casual. Some decent perks. Cool about taking vacation time.
Cons – Insurance defense. Not exactly the most scintilating of work. But whatever, there's definitely worse stuff out there. Like Lexis or Westlaw rep.

Pros – Transit checks are given to support staff members that show up to work on time.
Free Breakfast is served to the staff on dress down Fridays.
Cons – No bonuses; (occasional annual 1-2% raise)
No training system implemented for new hires;
Underpaid staff + lazy work environment = poor work performance;
Educated grown men and women acting very unprofessional seems to be the norm here; and is the example set by some partners.
Prior office manager left and instead of looking for a person who has managerial experience they just took the cheap route and promoted from in house. A senior secretary who has no managerial background, is not trained and certainly not capable of "managing" an office - there is no confidentiality, no professionalism, lots of gossip;
Equivalent to being back in high school not at an International Corporate Law Firm on Wall Street;
Advice to Senior Management – Give employees better pay, raises, and/or bonuses;
Implement a training program for incoming and existing staff by someone who is PROPERLY trained to do so;
Management needs to be changed or closely monitored;
Attorneys do not act professional to each other and support staff (foul language, horsing around, bickering, gossiping, child's play)
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Good benefits, reimbursement for subway travel to work, company outing in the summer, decent christmas party
Cons – They offer no training for incoming employees, expect you to know everything and criticize you when you do not; no bonus for support staff; at best you can expect a 2% annual raise; half the employees that are employed do not know the basic fundamentals of legal documentation; none of the employees do work consistanty; no double checking; overall lazy atmosphere for the staff; staff complains constantly they are underpaid which is why they underperform; recent office manager left and they promoted the lazyest employee to the new position based solely on tenure and not work experience;
Advice to Senior Management – pay employees better; create training program for incoming and existing staff; create bonus system for performance and you will see more consistant work and happier employees
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
