I worked at Howrey

Pros

Howrey's greatest asset were the people that worked there. Salary and bonus were on par for firms of its size.

Cons

Information was not timely distributed from upper management to staff. At times, too much buearucy in order to complete simple tasks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more forthright with disseminating information to firm. Everyone is a grown up and should be able to handle real life situations, but informing people early makes it easier.

    Pros

    Howrey Simon is a great firm for a beginner Paralegal (if you can get in) or a Senior Paralegal with many years of experience. For a beginner b/c you will be thrown into the trenches and it is a great way to gain exposure to trials. After one to three years there, opportunities will open up with other firms. Pros for a Senior Paralegal is that you will be paid very well.

    Cons

    For the most part everyone is cordial but you will encounter Partners and none alike that can be very difficult to work with. Work hours might be an issue for some who have a life outside the office. Depending on cases assigned and workload, you can be working late into the evenings and WEEKENDS. Sixty hours a week is common.

    Pros

    Freedom to innovate, achieve, improve. They buy the equipment necessary to move IT forward. It's a good mid-sized company, free of bureaucracy.

    Cons

    Firm is dissolving, we're getting laid off. The profits per partner have fallen, causing the rain-makers to leave, which in turn causes profits per partner to fall further, repeat ad collapsium.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch the bottom line. Bold strategic and risky moves were not the right course. Now, we're out of our jobs.
