    Loeb & Loeb was the best career move I ever made.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWhile I was at the firm, the firm culture promoted a high-class professional environment, intelligent and very well-managed organizational structure, encouraged growth and development through training programs for associates and paralegals, passionate and highly skilled attorney staff, a true sense of belonging and wanting to do your very best, and a strong compensation and benefit package offered to all employees.

    ConsWork life balance could sometimes be a challenge even when not preparing for and participating in trials or arbitrations, and case staffing needs sometimes could not be met.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue seeking out and hiring a diverse group of professionals at the entry, mid and senior levels to create a well-balanced staff.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Very smart lawyers doing interesting work in a conservative environment.

    Senior Counsel (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsIt's a stable firm organized in relatively small, independent practice groups. Clients are usually large institutions so the work often involves serving an in-house lawyer. Generally, lawyers are smart and slightly nerdy but polite. Your experience will depend on the partner(s) to whom you report (and how many). It's a pleasant place overall. Looks great on the resume when you leave.

    ConsThe firm seems to approach the practice of law from a very conservative position. Politics among partners is a factor but behind the scenes. Sometimes it seems as if a bunch of sole practitioners are sharing space and resources. Bonuses seem modest compared to other firms of this size. It's not great at diversity (although there are openly gay male partners).

    Advice to Senior ManagementBonus calculation needs to be more transparent. Management styles of partners are indirect, at best. Lawyers need to learn how to manage people & communicate feedback more clearly. The firm also feels like it hasn't changed in decades. The stunning under-representation of racial minorities and women among the partners speaks volumes and limits the firm's world view. The corporate culture feels like 1970, which will not attract modern clients or retain innovative lawyers.

    Do You Like Working with Stupid People?

    ProsStaff comp is excellent (to make up for pricey health insurance).
    Lots of employees have been there for a long time.

    ConsWeak HR department.
    Grossly overpriced health insurance. Not a competitive benefits package vis a vis other law firms.
    Sexual harassment is tolerated.
    Lack of resources.
    No staff development.
    No interest in doing things a new and/or better way.
    Too many lifer employees promoted beyond their capability.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop confusing length of service with ability to do a job.

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

    One of the best law firms to work for!

    Legal Assistant (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat pay, benefits and culture. Ongoing training, great office services. Great bonuses.

    ConsPartners are snobbish. That is really the only negative I have to say.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work!

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

    Loeb could be a great company to work if the culture of the Chicago office were much different.

    Assistant (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    Pros- close proximity to river taxi and Metra station
    - most of the partners are good to with and are great people

    Cons- OA is not a good advocate for staff and does not communicate well
    - Office never closes early preceding a holiday (even when all attorneys/paralegals have left)
    - Culture of office is challenging and often rude (e.g. people will look directly at you and not speak)
    - Salary is ok but the reviews are a joke
    - work is not challenging
    - no matching 401(k)

    Advice to Senior ManagementI'm not sure where to start or if it is even worth it because staff morale is extremely low.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
