    I worked at Olshan Law full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    it's a legal job. Many of the associates are good people. Some of the corporate and real estate partners are decent to work for.

    Cons

    less then market. Claim to be a "lifestyle" firm but many people billed 2200 to 2500 hours. Many of the partners are of the yeller type. Low retention rate.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    There are no pros to speak about with this law firm besides the wonderful employers.

    Cons

    No room for growth. The administration department do not have any leadership. the worse structure of a company i have ever seen.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employers complaints and provide meetings and come up with ways to make your employers love where they work at. work on the morality of the firm.

    Pros

    The firm pays decent salaries and provides good benefits. They have very sophisticated legal practices and some very smart people.

    Cons

    There is a lack of guidance by management, very long hours, tolerance for partner abuse of associates and a lack of management ability by partners.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps it would be a good idea for the partnership to go through management training so that the partners would learn how to better manage associates.
