Pros

Good benefits
Good overall compensation
Profit sharing
Birthday Off
Community Day Off

Cons

Overworked staff
Some managers and staff seem to have no clue.
Very little communication between staff to supervisor to management to upper management and back down.
Outsourcing staff where they can with no benefit.
Converting regular staff to exempt so no overtime pay is required.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of the staff/management dead-wood.
Managers should become obstacle removers not blockers.

  1. Transformation - but at what cost?

    Pros

    Morrison & Foerster offers fair compensation and benefits to staff.
    Flexible policy for alternative work schedule with an opportunity to telecommute as needed.
    Employee Assistance Program

    Cons

    Transformation has been the theme within the past 2 years. Unfortunately, this has translated to "let's change things now" without factoring in the human cost to this. This is especially felt within the IT community where members of the senior management team are setting unrealistic goals in projects. It would behoove the firm to find a qualified senior manager that has managed the appropriate technologies and experts in the past. The subordinates are suffering from their "on the job training" that can last for years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change is not easy let alone one that is transformational in nature. However, the right resources in management are required to drive those changes minimizing the human cost to this.

    Baffling that this is considered a "best place to work" by anyone

    Pros

    good benefits including health (you'll need it) and retirement contributions
    prestige if you're an attorney
    good tech support
    commitment to pro bono

    Cons

    As others have mentioned, partners treat people like garbage. They don't respect anyone, not even each other. I have heard staff addressed in words that would not make it on this site. The new review system is ridiculous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Suggest that somone determine who is actually in charge. The firm has a history of bringing in new leadership and then refusing to let it lead.
