    I worked at Baron & Budd full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Amazing benefits and generous bonus. Co-workers were like family.

    Cons

    Base salary was extremely low. Raises appeared to be across the board instead of based on work ethic.

    Advice to Management

    You value employees verbally which is great but please ensure their salary is also increased on merit.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, great IT department, beautiful offices with breathtaking views, amazing HR department, lots of office parties and catered meals, great facility/ break room perks, involved in community events, team driven projects.

    Cons

    Many inefficient practices, repetitive work, unorganized management, several attorney's in charge and they don't know what they are doing, some appearing busy/productive but more social, very cliquey.If certain attorney's don't like you for social reasons they will make it hard for you, even if you do a great job.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting certain inexperienced attorney's run things because they don't have the manners or tact or intelligence. Their ideas are to repeat the same work 10 different times and call it efficient. But yet, get upset if you work overtime. They don't take suggestions or positive criticism, even if it is actually a better practice and really efficient. They are given too much of a reign because the real experienced attorneys act like they are above it and shouldn't be bothered.

    Pros

    Met some lifelong friends at B&B. Loved that I felt I was helping people. Benefits were awesome!

    Cons

    Having to put in a lot of overtime for projects directed by a Shareholder, then not being appreciated. I heard that when attorneys were hired, they were specifically told to not mingle with 'staff'.
