    I worked at Ballard Spahr Andrews & Ingersoll full-time

    Pros

    Some of the best legal minds in the city. At one time this was the firm to beat, still to this day, the name Ballard Spahr stands for "pay to play" and a politically connected law firm.

    Cons

    With its days of glory long past, the current management has taken a Darwinian turn. Betraying long time employees that had worked there for over 20 years, repaying their service by stealthily laying them off and forcing them to work for a disgusting business provider and never telling the employees that they are now temporary workers, goodbye salary, vacations, and 401K and benefits, wage slaves and "Johnny Timeclocks" are the new normal.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees well, you should be ashamed of yourselves, you will never see the heights of the early 2000's again. Why are you doing this? Ballard was once a great place to work and they cared about their employees, filthy lucre is not a thing to build a practice on.

    Pros

    People are friendly; pay was great; offices were centrally located and beautiful

    Cons

    same as any other big law firm -- hours are long; there is pressure for senior associates to get a book of business

    Advice to Management

    create a path to of-counsel positions for those associates who are not interested in biz dev and communicate this policy
