    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Tysons Corner, VA

    I worked at Watkins Meegan full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They offered me a very competitive salary and great benefits. They were honest and believed in quality work product. They provided great training and they encouraged me to train the juniors in the firm. I got the opportunity to teach and even write training courses.

    Cons

    They were a little too big and lost that small firm feel. Their practices and procedures, while top notch, put them out of the reach of small firms who could have used their expertise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget the little guy. You are a great firm, but need to find a way to share some of that talent with small firms that could use your help.

    Be a little more patient for things to materialize. Investing helps growth, so increase the investment in resources today for future growth.

    Pros

    Benefits, Salary, Commute, and great for recent grad.

    Cons

    Titles go to people's heads very easily here. Culture is very out dated. Work and life balance is a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have staff evaluate management with surveys once or twice per year so you can weed out crummy management.

    I have been working at Watkins Meegan full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    This is my first job out of college and I couldn't imagine working anywhere else. Everyone has been so kind and helpful. I have learned so much through my formal and informal training. I have been exposed to so many opportunities and experiences already, and I know there are many more to come. This is definitely a place I see myself working at for a very long time and growing my career. There is plenty of opportunity for new and exciting experiences.

    The culture at Watkins Meegan is very unique. All of the employees are extremely close; it is almost like a family. Everyone I have encountered is truly concerned with the success and growth of others. A lot of my Seniors, including Managers and Partners, started their career with Watkins Meegan and have stayed, which says a lot about the company.

    Cons

    I can't think of any right now!
