I worked at Cohen & Grigsby, PC
Pros – Compensation and deferred compensation (assuming you last long enough as an employee to become vested) in the plan. Ability to attend CLE.
Cons – The people are not trust worthy and lack ethics. They actually believe all of the negative publicity about them (run a google search) is OK. You are always on guard, have to watch your back, and no job security at all. Many attorney positions are revolving doors. They claim to have minimal turnover but I experienced almost 30% in a short period of time. One department went from 4 attorneys to 1 in less than a year. Expect to have your work reviewed by attorneys outside your practice area (without your knowledge) and not necessary licensed in the state for which the work is being performed.
It is not a firm you would want to have listed on your resume - even if you are desperate for a job.
Advice to Senior Management – Start caring about the attorneys and employees. All of the negative publicity is NOT a positive and hurts the firms ability to bring in new business.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
