Treats its attorney editors like dirt

Current Employee - Senior Attorney Editor  in  Rochester, NY
Current Employee - Senior Attorney Editor in Rochester, NY

Pros

Barest minimum of hours required, can set own start/stop time, friendly folks,

Cons

Mind-numbing banal work (inserting thousands of footnotes a week into books), attorneys treated with contempt, have to report to supervisors who are not lawyers - some with no college degree. Senior management on site possibly insane.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire the directors.

Doesn't Recommend

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Eagan, MN

    Pros

    Nice people, good work life balance, down to earth culture

    Cons

    Felt stifled, no room for growth, a very functionally segmented company with no information sharing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sharing information across functional boundaries and allowing process improvement projects to reach beyond their specific function or area.

    Depends on your manager

    Pros

    Benefits are reasonable, particularly the health care and dental plans. Tuition reimbusement program is very competitive with what other companies offer.

    Cons

    They get awards for family-friendliness, but it really depends on your manager. My manager declared that you could either spend time with your family, or you could put in longer hours at work and get promoted and feed your family. No lie. Said manager also said that employees should not be given extra training, as everyone was 'too dumb' to understand advanced concepts for promotion. Yet, this guy was the apple of senior management's eye.
