Pros

Well known firm and job security

Cons

Quality of life is sub-par. The pressure to work long hours is evident.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Realize that employees have a life outside of work. Reward quality of work, not number of hours billed. This will promote efficiency.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    No 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep 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.
