    Pros

    -People (for the most part)
    -work environment
    -projects and work assignments

    Cons

    -could use a little more emphasis and creativity in how you train and retain associates. Make it more of a priority.
    -compensation

    Once ranked one of the best places to work, not just as a law firm. Not sure what happened.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on leading more and not just following what everyone else in the industry is doing. Spend less time trying to come up with catchy slogans and more time training associates and future partners to be excellent attorneys and future leaders.

    Make no mistake, it's big law through and through, so it comes with all of those headaches.

    Great benefits, salary, opportunity for growth, and theres always food

    Cons

    Fine line between attorneys and staff. Little to no communication between them because million dollar Attorneys feel they're "too good"

    Pros

    Great secretaries there for the most part, helpful, team effort type environment. Raises and bonuses were ok.

    Cons

    Secretive management, no sense of loyalty to staff at all unless you've been with them for 15 years and are in with your partner. Otherwise you're on the chopping block list. Favoritism there towards certain people. Some people get away with murder while the others pick up the slack.

    Advice to Management

    Show some sense of loyalty to your employees. Especially the ones that showed up every day and worked hard for you. Some sense of what's coming down the pike before it hits you in the head would be great.

    Pros

    Good Perks- food, gym memberships, babysitting

    Cons

    Bad politics, a lot of favoritism, fair share of work/play atmosphere

    Advice to Management

    Try not to apply too much. You cant get work done and cover reception for a Global Firm.
