    Pros

    Worked at Sutherland for a number of years. Firm leadership is excellent and approachable. Generally good work-life balance. Attorneys are generally friendly and caring. Generous paid leave policies.

    Cons

    In recent years, the benefits, while still very good compared to many competitors, have declined quite a bit. Transparency isn't what it used to be, either, and the firm has become more bureaucratic.

    Pros

    Paralegals are given the opportunity to perform at a pretty high skill level, and enjoy varied challenges. In general, I like my job very much, and the people I work with.

    Cons

    Paralegals work at a high sjill level, but are not always acknowledged for that, and sometimes associates talk down to you.

    Pros

    There were not a lot of pros but the only thing I would say would be there are handful of great people that work there who care.

    Cons

    HR refusal to deal with multiple complaints against one employee; different rules for certain group; no communication related to exodus of people

    Advice to Management

    I would say HR needs to fire the one employee who has caused multiple problems with everyone there and if they do not there will continue to have low morale, people leaving, and minimal work product.


  7. Great place but HR needs a re-do

    Pros

    People are very friendly
    Great work/life balance
    Do your job and you'll do great

    Cons

    HR department has no respect for hard-working employees. It seems as if they are trying to let good people go while keeping the slackers around that cause more work for everyone. If you want to advance and move up, unless you really know someone who knows someone who rubs elbows with HR, forget it. If HR Managers could get a complete overhaul and makeover it would be a fun place to work at but up until then, stay away

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to quit and let those who surpass you with knowledge and experience that possess a great sense of business acumen take your seat then watch and learn

    Pros

    Office culture is generally good and most of the people here are friendly.

    Cons

    Changes in management, especially senior management need to be made ASAP. Morale is way down and talented people are leaving. Benefits and compensation are severly lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Bring morale back up--start with bringing back little perks. Better compensation would be helpful

    Pros

    Great PTO, benefits and we used to have better morale. That has changed in the past 3 years.

    Cons

    No checks and balances. Complaints have been made on a high level chief and no one cared to address it. CHRO is a bully in the workplace. They do not promote minorities above manager level no matter what experience and great job they did. Very disheartening to others like me who witnessed the inequities. Poor morale.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within. Remove your glass ceiling!
