    I worked at Appleby full-time

    Pros

    Easy work, no micromanaging, over time is easy to get if that's appealing to you

    Cons

    Low pay, constant changing policies, lack of advancement, scheduling department is terrible, You use your own car if you're a field agent

    Advice to Management

    Management does a great job of staying out of your way, but they're stingy with raises and taking in feedback. Maybe invest in some company cars so field employees don't cause massive wear and tear on their personal vehicles.

    Not a bad company, but it's not something most people will be able to do long term.

    I worked at Appleby full-time

    Pros

    From what I recall, a good starting point for lawyers who recently graduated to get experience. Also can be a good starting point for corporate secretaries to get training.

    Cons

    There seemed to be a revolving door when it comes to support staff. In some departments, there is a lack of support and appreciation.

    Advice to Management

    Provide competitive salaries and incentives to build a culture where employees feel valued for their contributions to the company.

    I worked at Appleby full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great reputation as a law firm, working with some of the biggest and best brand name clients globally.

    Cons

    Unfocused and inconsistent management. Policies are enforced globally from leadership in various offices without any real thought. Relatively low pay compared to other firms in the industry. No real focus on developing individuals or progressing careers, will just hire experienced employees from outside.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on development and cohesiveness of each office and team individually

    I have been working at Appleby full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work environment. Good team of lawyers and support staff. The quality of work that you are exposed to as an attorney is fantastic - some of the worlds biggest clients doing some of the worlds biggest deals.

    Cons

    The compensation could be better. Appleby do not pay top dollar in the market place. Also, they can sometimes be slow to promote persons.

    Advice to Management

    They need to create better performance incentives especially as it relates to salaries and bonuses. They need to be more proactive rather than being reactionary.
