Pros

Great pay, benefits, and staff support. As a legal assistant, my colleagues and supervisors are all very supportive and ready to listen to my ideas on how to change the processes. They care about recruiting and keeping the talent.

Cons

As a large firm with a still somewhat newer IP department (around a decade), some processes can be refined. Luckily, those in management do listen to suggestions.

    Great people, good work, but lack of communication/understanding among partnership can be problematic

    Pros

    The firm has great talent, especially given the size of the firm and its regional, rather than national, presence. I have experience and responsibilities well above that typically offered to my level of attorney.

    Cons

    This is likely a result of the business model (partnership), but the lack of communication and/or understanding among the partners seems to sometimes lead to short-sighted decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and create incentives for partners to be more concerned with the long-term health of the firm. Cutting back on certain expenses like benefits and recruiting efforts may make for a bigger paycheck now, but the firm will suffer for it later when the quality of its attorneys decreases as a result.
