    I have been working at Selman Breitman

    Pros

    Relatively friendly environment. Very professional atmosphere with a definite air of arrogance, which is to be expected at a law firm of this size. Benefits are great and I had little/no difficulty getting vacation days off, which was a plus.

    Cons

    Some partners and senior associates can be quite a nightmare. Throughout my lifetime, I've heard jokes about how awful it is being a lawyer (and being around them); working at SB definitely illustrated that point.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Definitely felt that management, at times, were unjustified in their treatment of employees. Experienced significant shortcomings of managerial staff . Those employed at this firm, who are not associates, partners, or of counsel, definitely all share a feeling of misery.

    Awesome health benefits, generous Christmas bonus and Outstanding party! Most of the attorneys are very helpful and easy to work for.

    low salary, lack of daily involvement and communication between management and support staff, no staff meetings, ever

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get involved with your support staff, manage them, encourage communication, build them up to work as a team
