    Not employee friendly

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsDepending on which office you are in but the Atlanta office is more employee friendly. More laid back atmosphere. Good benefits and salaries are comparable to other firms in the area.

    ConsHave become employee unfriendly especially to those who have been with the firm over 15 years. Those are the first to go. Not all offices are operated the same. Benefits have gone down and the cost has risen. Raises are barely cost of living.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your staff like you do your clients.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    “Sutherland is a great place to work but doesn't offer much growth opportunities”

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prostime-off policies, training, free soda and coffee beverages, nice staff

    Conslack of growth opportunities, small bonuses, non-competitive salaries, professional development opportunities, reactive culture instead of proactive, not challenging, HR is not reliable

    Advice to Senior ManagementSome management inherited the positions and weren't fully qualified - require management trainings.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Only a bully would enjoy working here

    Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsBenefits start immediately, company will pay for MARTA pass for non-attorneys, great location

    ConsNo system of checks and balances for attorneys and how they treat support staff; very little, if any, support is given to support staff when a problem arises with an attorney. Pay is very low in comparison to other companies, especially considering that a college degree is required.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStand up to attorneys who are in the wrong, do not allow them to run rough-shod over their secretaries and administrative assistants.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Generally a great place to work, depending who you work with.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsClose interaction with partners and clients, diverse and interesting work, fabulous support staff, and a general feeling of collegiality (in some groups)

    ConsSome partners are notoriously difficult to work with (but they exist everywhere), slow to adopt new technology (may be in part due to the recession), and inconsistent messages being conveyed

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure consistent messages are being delivered to all employees and challenge partners to be more willing to consider new policies

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
