Pros

Great benefits package includes a choice between a standard and a premium PPO with Blue Cross, dental, vision, 125k plan, 401k, life with supplemental coverage add on and disability. Medical, dental, vision, life benefits available for dependents at extra cost. Employees are given Paid Time Off to be used as needed instead of hard vacation/sick time. Respect for employees is a part of their core values - they actually walk the walk on this value and have a professional standards policy. Strong pro bono and charitable work ethic. Employees are given paid time to participate in the firm's literacy program for low income children. Award winning diversity program. Nice people to work with... many employees have been with the firm for 15 years or more. Very few employees leave due to dissatisfaction with the firm or their work.

Cons

The Firm has undergone downsizing in the last year. There are fewer hands doing more work. Tight budgets give little room for flexibility. Layoffs have obviously impacted morale and employees are in a "keep your head down and your mouth shut" mode. Those who are still there are grateful for the job and aren't going to complain about additional job duties being given to them for fear that their job may be next. Compensation is on the lower end of staying competitive with peer firms in each local market. Pay is usually at the median. This is not a year where bonuses would be considered generous.

Advice to Management

Partner with your employees to get through the tough times.

    Pros

    The other professional staff are interested in getting the job done. Everybody is in the same boat, and as such; this builds a certain sense of camraderie that you may find lacking with other companies. It is this sense of teamwork that helps many people get through the day to day.

    Cons

    Sometimes you feel no different than a pen or a mouse. There are times when you feel like they simply do not care one way or another, and that can be tough on morale. The buzzword is "lateral", and unfortunately it has been taken to heart across the board.

    Advice to Management

    If people are such an investment and you are willing to invest in them, why not invest in keeping them?
