    Pros

    Great firm to work for. I loved the first practice group I was in. They were always encouraging and taught me a lot. Most days, I actually looked forward coming to work until I changed practice groups (big mistake). The benefits MVA offers are also great.

    Cons

    Some practice groups have trouble keeping staff and nothing is being done about that problem. Some of these groups also claim to be drama free but are not. I fell victim to one of these "drama free" practice groups and was unfortunately let go.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the problems the staff are having and try to mediate instead of firing them and instead of chastising the people who are victims of drama, handle the people who are creating it.

    Pros

    It's a good group of people that care that work hard.

    Cons

    The hours are quite long, but then again, where aren't the hours long?

    Pros

    They pay well. In fact, they pay better than comparable Charlotte firms.

    Cons

    Somewhat sexist. No transparency in the hiring and promotion process.

    Advice to Management

    Let people know early where they stand in the hiring and promotion process. Make the organizational less of a good ol' boy's club.

    Pros

    Depending on which attorney you worked for you either had a great work experience of a horrible one. The pay was good and they offered an excellent benefit package.

    Cons

    Paralegals, who are required to bill certain hours should not be forced to punch a time clock. They do a lot of the grunt work for very little recognition and do not have a voice. The HR people don't have a clue of how each department works but are always offering up their opinions on how to fix things. The company also is not as diverse as they like to proclaim.
