    Pros

    Lots of opportunity here to rise to the occasion. If you have an interest in something specific, HR will help you get there- whether it is certain type of client work, bringing new ideas to the table, or introducing something to the firm. Great benefits like summer fridays and gym discounts/reimbursements. Promotions and raises are based on merit, which is very rewarding.

    Cons

    Cannot think of any at this time.

    Pros

    Everyone looks forward to Summer Fridays.

    Cons

    Limited 401K Benefits, Suspicious termination of employees with disabilities and temporary medical situations. Limited job security and high turn-over rate. There was zero maternity leave discussed. Upper management is often unprofessional in handling internal issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve training programs for new hires and allow for more transparency.

    I worked at Friedman LLP full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Summer Fridays are the one and, sadly, only perk of working at Friedman.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the managing partner is nothing more than a figurehead at Friedman. He knows nothing of the ins and outs of what is really going on and the good employees of the firm suffer. A napoleon like man with ice running through his veins who knows nothing of human resources, or accounting for that matter, runs Friedman. They are due for a terrible law suit that will open up the eyes of the equity partners. Hopefully then will they step in and let someone with some sense take over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up your eyes. Stop letting people who know so little run your firm into the ground.

    Pros

    Structure, opportunity and learning opportunities. Very professionally run. Most of the partners want to help you grow.

    Cons

    Some nepotism, better for people straight out of college than experienced.
