    I had a very good experience at Epstein Becker & Green

    Mailroom Clerk (Former Employee)

    Internal Competition and management cannibalism

    Partner (Former Employee)

    ProsLarge "name" brand in health care and labor creates some resume value if the attorney doesn't already have it. However, the lack of depth, churning of fees, internal competition, poor team work and internal competition, and practice of internal cannibalism by management make this opportunity short-lived and high cost. Plan to leave on your way in.,

    ConsPromotion and practices cannibalize majority of attorneys for the benefit of the few. Services frequently structured to require excessive time, churn fees. Labor practice negotiates discount rates below costs, the losses of which are blamed upon the attorneys assigned to staff the cases rather than the partners that negotiated them below market rates. Look at high turnover of attorneys and clients.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    NEEDS ALOT OF CHANGE

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGood with work hour flexibility and there's very little overtime. Tries to keep up with up to date technology.

    ConsManagement not open to change. Attorneys, Management and Staff are all old school. This firm has a high staff turnover, both attorneys and staff are always leaving. There are no yearly bonuses given to employees. Many staff members are unhappy here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEpstein Becker needs to consider some major restructuring. Bring new people in who can suggest new ideas. Be open to change so that the firm can grow not diminish.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Worst Place to Work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood PTO benefits from start date.

    ConsBunch of screaming, yelling "professionals".

    Advice to Senior ManagementHorrible place to work. No team spirit, emotionally immature "professionals", no communication except for negative verbal attacks, no attorney mentoring. As a labor law firm it needs to practice what it supposedly practices.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
