    Pros

    Quiet, left alone, The commute is great from New Jersey; the offices are in the NY Times Building. Prestigious firm.

    Cons

    pay is a bit less than market rate for similar work; contract attorneys are treated more as paralegals than lawyers by higher ups.

    Advice to Management

    Offer pro-bono opportunities to contract attorneys while they are in between assignments or while computer systems are down. This is an untapped resource.


  2. Not good for lower level.

    Pros

    Attorneys are generally friendly and respectful. Co-workers are generally friendly, helpful and respectful. Working environment among your peers is without hostility and/or resentment. Very team-oriented environment.

    Cons

    Not good for secretaries. Treated more like a number than individuals. No real support for issues one may have. No perks, other than your basic benefits. Human Resources pretty much caters to the attorneys with little regard for the secretaries.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the secretaries like valued employees of the firm. Address their issue(s) as well and allow them some of the same consideration as the attorneys without penalty. Offer some perks to the secretaries to make them valued and appreciated.
