Current Employee - Legal Secretary in Sydney (Australia)

I have been working at Baker & McKenzie full-time for more than a year

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    I worked at Baker & McKenzie as an intern for less than a year

    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
