The real deal

Paralegal (Former Employee) Menlo Park, CA

ProsFirm name recognition for lateral moves to another firm. Benefits.

ConsNo real leadership. Firm lacks individuals who understand a team concept. Others in management seem not as helpful when a tight deadline is looming. Employee morale always seemed low and there was too much micromanaging without a true mentoring. Mentoring and refrain from all the negative chit chat about this lawyer or the next lawyer. Hold people accountable, even upper management.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep your ears open and act when there is incompetence. Don't let people stay on at the firm who have a problem with fostering a team atmosphere. Stop being afraid to delegate.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
