I worked at Jackson Lewis as a contractor for less than a year
Pros – Friendly staff, nice office location, and okay office culture. Hiring younger employees.
Cons – Unfocused management in Accounting Department. Lack of quality training, felt like I was, to an extent, wasting away.
Advice to Senior Management – Develop a plan and stick to it. Constantly changing goals and future plans make for a very unfocused vision for employees.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at Jackson Lewis
Pros – Time off is not an issue, and the company is very willing to work with your schedule. Many, many intelligent and dedicated people work here. Groups of people are close, and there are often several people enjoying a happy hour after work. The people are very resourceful, and have developed several unique solutions to otherwise orthodox problems.
Cons – The atmosphere is very cliquish, often there are internal power struggles between coworkers on opposing sides/departments. At times the environment is very bitter and feels like a highschool/sorority with most of the staff gossiping about the others. It almost always gets back to the individuals being discussed. There is an overall attitude to treat non-attorneys as a lower class, and the attorney's mistakes are hidden/protected. Elitism is strongly at play, and there is little opportunity for growth for non-attorneys.
Advice to Senior Management – It wouldn't matter, because this is really the problem. The people who could make positive change are not concerned with doing it.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
