    I worked at Manning & Marder full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Office location was nice until they moved; office manager is very caring.

    Cons

    Pretentious partners, minimal investment in technology, meager bonuses, working here is like running a marathon with a tire chained to your waist. Issues raised with upper management are consistently ignored. Ergonomics are horrible, especially for a firm that focuses on workers' compensation. Software and hardware used in the firm are nearly antiques, but management constantly promises updates that never come. Performance reviews last year were delayed by 7 months for no reason, delaying raise payments as well. Very amateur.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on increasing productivity and less on hat decoration competitions. Stop outsourcing everything. The clients will eventually leave when they see how much the quality of work suffers.

    Good people, below average pay, behind the tech times

    Pros

    Now called "Manning & Kass." Coworkers are terrific. Everyone seemingly gets along and there is very little office drama. Management communicates reasonably well and you generally are not hassled too much about trivial things.

    Cons

    The pay is low for industry standards. The firm tries to prop it up with performance-based incentives, but really, they should be paying their employees more. Almost every year several mid-level associates leave for competing firms offering a slight salary bump. Also, the technology at the firm is a joke, making simple tasks take additional unnecessary time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The firm should give back to its employees more in the form of base salary & invest more in proper technology. It's a decent operation, but the penny-pinching is frustrating.
