    Overall a great place to work, but don't expect much if you aren't a billing attorney

    I have been working at Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Mostly friendly, interesting place to work. Compensation and expectations are reasonable. Benefits are great. Paul Eberle is a great leader of the firm and make sure to get to know everyone personally, regardless of status within the company.

    Cons

    There is a clear hierarchy, and admin departments are sitting near the bottom. There is nowhere to move up, so the only obvious way to get promoted is to leave the company. Gets boring and monotonous after awhile.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out a way to make non-billing employees happier, which in turn will make those departments run smoother, which in turn will be better for business.

    Pros

    Is a Large Firm, Well Respected Attorneys, Decent Pay and Benefits, Great Technology, Document management system was top of the line

    Cons

    The firm really had a disconnect between the management (partners), their expectations, and the work that you were provided with. Clearly there were favorites not based on work product but perhaps location/office you were in. Work was not funnelled evenly and, in this economic climate, that resulted in some attorneys not hitting their numbers due to lack of work rather than lack of effort. Pretty unfair. As a young attorney I had solid origination but not enough to keep myself busy for the billable requirements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure there is a mechanism in place to funnel the work to all attorneys. Be fair in distribution of projects espectially with attorneys that have comparable work product.

    Pros

    The compensation is sufficient and the expectations are not outside the realm of any in the legal field. At most times it is a quite pleasant place to work with a great view and many perks.

    Cons

    The unfriendly class structure between staff, administration and attorney and the occasional bad apples.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to create and promote comradery between all staff.
