I have been working at WW&R full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

I have nothing to list.

Cons

Very bad experience overall. Attorney's are rude and have no professionalism, they are so out of touch with reality and the ability to run a business. Many partners have been there for 20+ years and have no other work experience, they were "raised" in this Firm with the wolves. I'm suprised the Firm has made it this long without shutting down. Their processes and technology is dated from the 80's and 90's. If you are an upstanding individual with integrity, this is not the place to work. They try to have "employee appreciation" initiatives but the employee is asked to donate money? Is this backwards or what? Raises are frozen for 2013, maybe you should try to deomonstrate employee appreciation by giving raises? Oh that's right the Firm is struggling financially therefore the employees suffer but not the partners. The partners still recieved their bonuses.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire the crooked Partners!

    I have been working at WW&R full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    On day 1 - you start with over two weeks of Paid Time Off - seriously! I work in a highly-skilled role within the firm, so I get paid fair market value for my service. Those who knowingly choose to take an hourly position should know what they're getting. I think the firm places appropriate value on work based on the responsibility of the function, so no, the hourly positions don't make as much money as the salaried executives, nor should they.

    Furthermore, this firm has one of the BEST training programs around, so people have the opportunity the VASTLY improve themselves professionally AT NO COST - WWRUniversity is unlike any other training program I've seen (not sure how anyone could fault the training opportunities here).

    Good work is genuinely rewarded with recognition (although it would be nice if they would promote from within more often - some recent top executive hires from outside the firm have me scratching my head). Lastly, I have recommended this firm to my friends (one of them was eventually hired), because it's a great place to work if you're a REAL professional and behave like a professional. But it's not easy work, and if you HAVE to know what you're getting into or you're going to have a false impression of what your work life will be.

    Cons

    There have been a few staff adjustments this year, which is never easy for anyone. Also, if you are comfortable working for lawyers (those crazy creatures with really funny personalities) then don't bother doing it. They aren't always easy to work for, and I laugh whenever I hear people express shock about what it's like to work for attorneys - if you can't stand the heat, don't walk into the kitchen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pandering to the lowest common denominator when you recruit and hire employees. If you want loyalty, promote a culture that embraces loyalty. Stop hiring the village idiots and invest some time and money in GOOD people.

    I worked at WW&R full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good medical, vision, and 401K Benefits, Ok pay and never a dull moment due to the work load. The newly more relaxed dress codes a plus.

    Cons

    Terrible, terrible upper management staff! They tend to be rude, out of touch, condescending and unrealistic. It is so unfortunate because things will never change! The new TV show "Toxic Workplace" should contact WWR immediately in order to make changes there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire and start over with new managers.
