    It is a financially, well-managed law firm.

    Legal Secretary (Former Employee) Minneapolis, MN

    ProsThey do manage an appropriate level of staffing and services to reasonably respond to client demands.

    ConsSalaries are definitely not the most competitive for non-attorney staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove the non-attorney salaries to be more market-competitive. Human Resources needs to improve on hearing and appropriately responding to non-attorney staff concerns.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Do NOT work for the Property Tax Litigation Department!!!!!

    Legal Secretary (Current Employee) Minneapolis, MN

    ProsGreat benefits and employee resources

    ConsThe attorneys and the paralegal in the Property Tax Department are abusive bullies. Do NOT apply for this position.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to educate the attorneys and paralegal in the Property Tax Department about workplace bullying and incivility. It would behoove you to learn about how much this abusive behavior is costing your business in high turnover. HR needs to give potential employees fair warning about these personalities--its not fair to withhold that information.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Very nice place to work.

    Legal Secretary (Current Employee) Minneapolis, MN

    ProsLarge firm with many choices for working in various areas of law. Also with a large firm there are many choices for assignments and opportunities to change areas of legal practive for legal administrative assistants. Reviews are done yearly and feedback is given. Salaries appear to be competitive among the other large law firms in the city. Flexible scheduling is also available and the work enviroment is social and friendly. Also there are not only lots of client services available but also in-house services to assist support staff to allow them to be as efficient as possible.

    ConsLarge firm enviroment can be daunting at first and does take time to get used to.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNothing.

    Excellent culture excellent people!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat people to work with and excellent culture in the work place. The attorneys are very intelligent individuals and value all the different professions that help to make the company tick.

    ConsLaw firms tend to move a little slower when it comes to new trends and technology which can help to improve efficiency. However, this is a minor con to the overall greatness of this firm.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
