Mid-size PNW law firm - IT

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

ProsVery proud of their "Best Places to Work" rating, do make efforts to have social events, engage employees with volunteer efforts and community work.

ConsSalaries are average, the scale of the enterprise had surprisingly little mobility, lots of hoops to jump through in order to get training or advance your skills. Company culture is socially liberal but conservative in terms of how long it takes to effect change. Is becoming more corporate in recent years, which has led to increased expectations without better tools to effect those changes on the time frame demanded. And yes, I do mean demanded.

Advice to Senior ManagementReorgs do not mean change - listen to those doing the grunt work at the bottom of the heirarchy and try to integrate their suggestions to make meaningful change instead of appeasing attorneys. The attorneys will benefit in the end, but they need to broaden their worldview to see potential benefits that may not appear immediate.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
