Good place to work, but plenty of room for improvement

Paralegal (Current Employee)
New York, NY

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

ConsCommunication 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 Senior ManagementUse 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
