I worked at Brinks Hofer Gilson & Lione full-time (More than 3 years)
Associates are not overly competitive with each other and are team players - willing to do their fair share and step in for each other when necessary. Support staff is excellent- responsive, helpful and experienced.
Work load can be intense as with any legal practice. Management could be more transparent.
Advice to Management
Be realistic about representations about the firm's financial and business situation. Don't deny that improvements may be necessary and share with associates what steps are being taken to make improvements.
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Brinks Hofer Gilson & Lione (Chicago, IL) in August 2017.
Pre-selected for first round interview. Typical interview. Last about 20 mins. No hard question. Only one interviewer for first round. Just talked about past experience on resume. Really friendly.
