Pros – Top NM firm, great benefits, great potential for partner, high compensation for the area, lots of opportunities and different areas of law
Cons – Job satisfaction depends on who you work with, demanding, dificult to develop a practice, not as collegial as one would like.
Advice to Senior Management – There should be a better training for transition from associate to partner. Currently there is little firmwide training or development and instead depends largely on the individual and their luck in working with other rainmakers.
Pros – I liked my co-workers, benefits are good.
Cons – Very low pay. Very little room for advancement. Inept management run by executive committee with no business experience. Most people who have worked there for a long period of time are only there because they like the benefits. The air of depression in the break-room is palpable.
Advice to Senior Management – Have your business run by people who actually know how to run a business. Pay your staff better wages and imagine how hard your job would be without them. Imagine trying to live on the wages you offer to people.

Pros – The benefits are pretty good compared to the rest of Albuquerque firms.
Cons – Very toxic work environment. Support staff are treated like chattel and most people do not seem to be very happy there. Management is very unprofessional - much like the high school mean girls. Compensation is very low if you compare to cost of living.
Advice to Senior Management – Go back to school to learn a participative organizational culture like Zappos.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
Pros – The best reasons to work at Modrall Sperling are quality of life, plus good New Mexico connections, excellent variety of work, and enormous amounts of flexibility. Management is very attentive to quality-of-life issues and will seriously consider most employee initiatives. New Mexico is a unique environment in which to work, with recreational and cultural opportunities not readily available elsewhere.
Cons – The downside of the flexible work environment and the available variety of work is the lack of clear expectations or work requirements. Associates get variable work expectations. Salary is excellent for the New Mexico market, but low when compared to salaries in similar-sized firms in other states. New Mexico is one of the higher-tax states in the western region. New Mexico's "banana republic" political culture and economic malaise can often be frustrating to outsiders.
Advice to Senior Management – More pay and more feedback.
