    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.

    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.
