    I worked at McKee Nelson

    Pros

    Professional environment, friendly co-workers. The atmosphere is what you would expect at a big law firm - highly skilled, experienced attorney's with demanding schedules

    Cons

    Potentially long hours, heavy lay-offs. With the recession, the firm began laying off large numbers of staff and a number of attorneys.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reactionary, as with much of the legal industry, is a good word to describe this firm's financial decision making. Greater respect for staff and junior attorneys would go a long way.
