    Great people, good work, decent (for lawyers) pay.

    Lawyer (Current Employee)
    Grand Rapids, MI

    ProsThe people. Every day it is enjoyable to come to work because you know you will be treated respectfully by those above you on the totem pole, and treated nicely by those technically below you.

    The office building itself is also quite a nice place. The location is a little odd in the sense you can't really walk to any good restaurants, but it's a modern landmark building with an excellent view of the city. Easy, convenient parking in the lower 1/4 of the building.

    ConsThe pay does not compare favorably to other, larger markets. Of course, the cost of living is much cheaper in Grand Rapids -- but probably not enough to make up for the large gap in pay.

    Lack of transparency
    Failure to communicate expectations

    Advice to Senior ManagementEven though your employees dont "bring in the dollars" the work doesn't get done on it's own. We deserve respect and feel unappreciated.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
