    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at AMERICAN Legal Search full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Mentoring, freedom to work independently, flexible hours. The CEO is is a hands on leader with detailed knowledge of legal recruiting as well as a good businessman. The company's reputation and image improved when the new CEO came on in 2010.

    Cons

    Communication between offices is sometimes lacking. Accounting is off-site and they should pay more attention to details. CFO is hard to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Hire additional accounting staff.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at AMERICAN Legal Search full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Recruiters post actual positions, not non-existent ones designed to generate leads. This is unethical and a waste of candidate’s time

    Cons

    Posting non-existent positions is unethical. Inquiry to the company goes unanswered. Why would you waste people’s time this way? It’s a bad business strategy.
