Pros

Friendly work environment; recognition for good performanace; good pay; good opportunities for advancement.

Cons

Communication between attorneys and support staff can be lacking; some incompetent paralegals become entrenched in the firm and rise to senior status without merit simply because they have been there a long time; not as many perks as other firms (paralegals can't use Seamless Web, tighter restrictions on car service, not a lot of free events for employees).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Use a more meritocratic approach with support staff; do not simply give promotions for length of service, but rather for quality of work; provide for free events and services for employees.

    Well known firm and job security

    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.
