Pros

Promotions were given internally first and most of the staff and associates are amazing to work with

Cons

Upper management really just doesn't care about anyone. Their only concern is filling their pockets. Its such a shame because they do have a good staff that they do not deserve. They do not address ANY HR issues you have, regardless of the situation, or how often you beg for resolution.

Advice to Management

If your calling yourself a managing partner, act like one.

    Pros

    KDV is a great place to work. Period. The head of the insurance practice group, who is also the co-managing partner of the firm, is one of the best attorneys in his industry. Although he is a master of his trade, he always took the time to provide guidance and really listen and debate novel issues when they arose. The insurance practice group provides associates with autonomy and even junior associates are regularly tapped for input on overall strategy for the matters they handling maters. On top of that, the firm brings in high-level, challenging work. Of course, the firm expects its associates to work hard and produce good work product, but the firm rewards the hard work. I didn't join KDV straight out of school but I can honestly say that I became a lawyer at KDV. As for the partners in the other groups, they are all really good people. I mean really good human beings. Their is no caste system and all the partners that I worked with treated the associates with respect and professionalism, just as they would treat their partners. On top of being a great place to work and learn, it's also a fun place to work. And not just fun for a law firm, but genuinely fun. The attorneys and staff are more than just business colleagues. They are friends. Unlike many firms in its industry, KDV is a true meritocracy. You will get out what you put in.

    Cons

    Other than the coffee, there is nothing bad about the firm.
