are all firms designed the same?

Staff (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

ProsIt's still in the middle between outgrowing the mom & pop feeling and becoming a large firm; which is good because you still get some of the residual family feel. For the most part we are not micro-managed and are treated as competent professionals.

ConsThe annual "performance" increase system isn't based on performance. It's more about who you know and how much you are liked or disliked (the family feel backfiring).

Advice to Senior ManagementAlthough we understand that the attorneys are the bread and butter of the firm, management should acknowlege that staff are the tools that bring & help keep the two together. Whenever budgets need to be cut, we're the first source on the table.
