Pros

Collegial working environment and positive growth.

Cons

As you work your way up it becomes difficult to negotiate for pay increases and navigate the complex political landscape of the firm. There is also a lot of disparity in what attorneys earn. The firm generally is not willing to pay even market rate for attorneys which is why they continually lose great talent.

Advice to Management

Recognize the loyal members of your firm and stop trying to save money by underpaying your valuable team members. Rather, save money and make money by retaining talent and encouraging them to grow and develop business.

    Extremely poor office management

    Pros

    Some good, smart attorneys who recognize high quality work.

    Cons

    Office staff management is based purely on favoritism. If you're not a favorite, then management will finagle a way to try to make your office life uncomfortable. Staff management appears to have very little else to do but this.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone knows staff management is incompetent. Maybe it's time to swap it out for some real understanding of how to manage.

    Pros

    This place is amazing, many projects that build careers. Cutting edge technology. Awesome CIO that rolls his sleeves up to work with his team.

    Cons

    Hard to say anything bad, trim IT staff only leads to working on a lot of great projects.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change.
