I have been working at Kaufman Borgeest & Ryan, LLP full-time
KBR is full of dedicated, highly accomplished attorneys who know their field and do good work. Lots of room for advancement.
Little transparency, lack of communication; rivalry between practice groups.
Advice to Management
More communication, encourage input from more sources.
I applied online. I interviewed at Kaufman Borgeest & Ryan, LLP (New York, NY) in June 2014.
I was called in for an interview. Once I got to the interview, it was a long drawn out interview meeting the HR Managers and Attorney I "would" be working for. I was in the office over two hours, which seemed pretty promising. They interviewed me thoroughly and promised they would call me back in a week or so to let me know if I got the job or not. They did say that there were more people to be interviewed, which I understand but a week went by, I followed up with them. They told me they were sorry but would still be interviewing another week or so and they would call me back when the interview process was over. A month went by, I called them back and they said "unfortunately, the position was filled. HOW RUDE AND UNPROFESSIONAL. I spent over $200 between the interview outfit, getting my resume printed on professional paper and transportation, plus lunch for the day. I guess they have nothing better to do than waste people's time and money that they don't have because they are trying to find a job just to be rejected and disrespected by people like HR Managers and Attorneys at Kaufman Borgeest. No worries, at least I am employed by a professional and more reputable firm now.
