The best job I've had

Legal Secretary (Current Employee)
Sydney (Australia)

ProsHours are 9-5 with an hour for lunch (secretarial)
Friendliness across the firm in all areas
Down to earth partners
Flexibility

ConsI am yet to come across any real cons. Perhaps turnover and communication issues between HR and the floors not as good as it should be

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

    Professional work environment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    I worked at Baker & McKenzie for more than 5 years


    Pros: Professional development is encouraged with possibility to develop your own… Cons: Business development is insufficiently stimulated - it's hard to prove on evaluation that BD events deserve to be regarded as "quality" working hours… Advice to Senior Management: It should be more transparent policy on encouraging the employees to work at their best (not simply judging by… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
