Pros

The culture in Troutman's New York office is more relaxed than that of other New York firms. The individuals (attorneys and staff alike) at the firm are very friendly and supportive. Associates are expected to work hard and are given as much responsibility as they can handle. Partners are approachable and respectful.

Cons

Overall, there really is no "con" to working at Troutman. Like all firms, there are some long hours, but the work load balance is reasonable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increased interaction between the offices is always encouraged. In general, continue on the path the firm is currently heading in.

    Pros

    Firm is perceived as well known and established, therefore salaried and hourly non-legal employees are desirable for other firms' onboarding. Attorneys are well compensated and given opportunities to grow based on abilities and willingness to engage

    Cons

    Employees in key roles have obstacles presented to them when they attempt to take paid time off as per firm guidelines. Mid and low level management seem to lack oversight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Administrative and non-legal management roles lack adequate priority and oversight by senior administrative officers. HR management needs improvement and training in basic HR functions. A genuine team environment and the return on a non-disengenuos measurement of such an environment would be a financial and productivity windfall for Troutman Sanders.

    Pros

    Lots of time off, flexible, smart managers. The firm itself has a good name and on the surface cares about its employees. The firm was the last to have layoffs during the economic downfall, because they wanted to ride it out as much as possible. I think the big overall picture is the firm as a whole has the best intentions, however, each office has to run its own course.

    Cons

    no bonuses, raises or promotions in the office for the last 3 years, yet they're always asking for contributions for this and that event.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should provide more appreciation towards staff through compensation and less office events...which you make us pitch in $$ for. Or should provide advancement opportunties for staff.
