Pros

The practice is very focused

Cons

Communication is poor. Needs improvement

Advice to Management

Communication from and to the management level is poor. Needs improvement. Workload should be more properly managed. Varies over time and among associates and agents.

    Pros

    Good benefits. No glass ceiling as patent agents are treated equally alongside attorneys. Transparent billing rates prevent gender bias. Once you switch from salary to billable pay, you make 40% of your billable rate (which is high compared to other law firms).

    Cons

    Few people at BFF have a relaxed work/life balance. That said, this firm is more laid back than other firms I've seen or heard about.

    Advice to Management

    The policy and benefits decisions made by the partners demonstrates that agents and attorneys are highly valued. However, I got the sense that admins had fewer perks.


  2. Small boutique biotech law firm in the silicon valley

    I have been working at Bozicevic Field & Francis

    Pros

    Small firm, direct contact with senior agents and attorneys and partners, very informal, great training and one-on-one contact with people at all levels and aspects of the firm, friendly and intelligent people; attorneys and agents mostly manage his/her own work schedule.

    Cons

    With small firm operation comes several processes that are informal. There is no systematic and formal evaluation and the promotion system is vague.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great to have some formal evaluation process (forms to filled out) both for people playing supervising roles and employees under supervision.
