Pros

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

Cons

I 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

Advice to Management

Reward performance with more than salary I.e monthly or quarterly recognition for individuals performing well to continue motivating them. It's not always about salary.

    Pros

    Brand name was good, working culture was very good, some of the lawyers were much friendlier and would take time to engage you in their work.

    Cons

    Strict working culture, don't have that much time for interns, don't get that much access to the lawyers, was mainly working with pupils

    Pros

    Professional development is encouraged with possibility to develop your own work and client strategies

    Cons

    Business development is insufficiently stimulated - it's hard to prove on evaluation that BD events deserve to be regarded as "quality" working hours for the purposes of bonuses and salary increase. Happy clients who return with new assignments are not viewed as a result of BD.

    Advice to Management

    It should be more transparent policy on encouraging the employees to work at their best (not simply judging by amount of billable hours and other formal evaluation criteria but with reference to continuing workload and returning clients' loyalty).
