Great people, I had a very good experience, if I were to continue in law this is where I would want to work in terms of culture.

    I worked at Stradley Ronon Stevens & Young LLP full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Stradley pays a very good salary, the benefits are great, and the people you work with are very nice, for the most part.

    Cons

    There are too many rules to follow. You can't be even one minute late without hearing about it. Of course, if you work 10 minutes past your quitting time, that's fine -- but don't expect to get paid. You are not allowed to access the internet during your lunch hour, which isn't fair. You're on your own time and the firm shouldn't have a say as to what you do during that hour.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so strict with your employees. Be fair when an employee is late. There are acceptable reasons for that. Recognize their worth, and reward them for it.

    I have been working at Stradley Ronon Stevens & Young LLP full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friendly people. Generally high level attorneys and high level work. Clients vary from very large companies to smaller companies that can barely afford the fees.

    Cons

    Pay scale is lower than at slightly larger firms. Bonuses are very weak if given at all. Sometimes I wonder about the abilities of some of the partners, especially those who have been here as the firm has grown. But I suppose that is the situation with any firm of this size or larger.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) If people can make more money going in house, they will go.

    2) There is no reason to go through a compensation committee process if salary adjustments only vary by a couple of percent. Just make it lock-step and save everyone some time and grief. If someone does an exceptional job, that's what bonuses are for.
