Pros

Time off is not an issue, and the company is very willing to work with your schedule. Many, many intelligent and dedicated people work here. Groups of people are close, and there are often several people enjoying a happy hour after work. The people are very resourceful, and have developed several unique solutions to otherwise orthodox problems.

Cons

The atmosphere is very cliquish, often there are internal power struggles between coworkers on opposing sides/departments. At times the environment is very bitter and feels like a highschool/sorority with most of the staff gossiping about the others. It almost always gets back to the individuals being discussed. There is an overall attitude to treat non-attorneys as a lower class, and the attorney's mistakes are hidden/protected. Elitism is strongly at play, and there is little opportunity for growth for non-attorneys.

Advice to Management

It wouldn't matter, because this is really the problem. The people who could make positive change are not concerned with doing it.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    a large labor and employment footprint for access to knowledge, experienced attorneys in certain offices, offices in key markets

    Cons

    Nepotism, lack of transparency on partnership elevation and compensation, poor management that is unwilling to listen to criticism and unwilling to change, loss of direction, useless shareholder meetings, waste of resources and overwhelming administration overload for employees at all levels

    Advice to Management

    Open yourself for honest feedback, think about transparency, consider ways to avoid nepotism and contribution from everyone, avoid mistakes from a lack of innovation and hire a communications director
