A great place to work if you are a lawyer, not so great in IT

Pros

Great people, really nice office, reasonable pay.

The culture in every part of the practice except IT is fantastic. The partners in particular are superb and really care about the "Norton Rose Family".

Cons

The management in IT, particularly middle management are shockingly bad. Really good technical IT staff are constantly undermined by a management team who are both incompetent and rude.

2012 has brought new lows of sucking, black hell to the denizens of the 3rd floor.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop engaging in constant re-organisations. Treat technical staff with respect. Stop blaming technical staff for management failures.

    Cons

    Gap between principles Theory and actual Practice
    Administratively, classic safe haven where managers hide from responsibility and avoid
    being held accountable for errors of judgement or problems they created or failed to solve.
    Poor HR - people are not important

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) evaluate theory and practice in individual offices for business principles and best practice
    2) understanding of ground zero team
