    Pros

    Plunkett Cooney is for the most part a family oriented company. Most individuals who work there have the opportunity to get promoted within the company regardless of your position. Also they have a wonderful benefit package.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, because of a few controlling individuals people have been allowed to be promoted in the company because of the people they know and not based on their abilities. I was there for a number of years and this is not how the company was operated when I first started.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the number of individuals who have either quit or have been fired under certain management. Also, you may want to speak with the Human Resource manager as they are aware of what is going on but they are not able to correct this problem because of the power that this individual has.

  3. Literally everyone -- including department leaders -- are friendly and easy to get along with.

    Pros

    Unlike most other large law firms, most people don't have Type A personalities. Younger and newer associates are treated well and given opportunities to handle actual files, appear in court, and argue motions.

    Cons

    The firm no longer offers free soda, bottled water, or juice. We also use BlackBerrys and DROIDs instead of iPhones. But these are the largest "cons" about this firm. Great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, keep Hank Cooney (or someone just like him) as President and CEO, and all will be great for everyone.
