    Pros

    Benefits, respectfulness between staff - attorney, support and administration, caring in-house administration, superior grasp of economic changes and proactiveness in seeing the firm through the changes.

    Cons

    Law firms do not typically provide any meaningful life/work balance. Competitiveness of salaries, raises and bonuses may be slightly slipping but obviously being influenced by economy and staffs' need for job security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am very proud to work here and believe it to be an intelligent and caring firm. Please remember the level to which your employees are struggling. The economy has devastated some of us beyond what you are aware - utilities, foreclosures, etc.

    Pros

    Winstead is a well-respected law firm with some good attorneys.

    Cons

    Definitely a 2nd tier law firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We can't always satisfy all shareholders. The firm needs to run more like a business. Instead, everything revolves around building consensus and making everyone happy.
