    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Berger Singerman, P A full-time

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity for relatively young partners to get into management positions; the founding partners are very loyal to long time firm members. High achievers get paid well for Florida.

    Cons

    Too many meetings; micromanagement in certain departments

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Berger Singerman, P A full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good comp, some very talented people there. I never felt the lack of teamwork that others have complained about. Good bankruptcy shop.

    Cons

    A lot of ethically dubious folks in management, even by Florida standards. The only place some of these people should have in fraud litigation is as defendants. They don't really support associates. I saw associates who went through health or family issues, and instead of supporting them, the firm just dropped them.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Berger Singerman, P A full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good salary and resources of big firm

    Cons

    Their is not the teamwork they advertise - people are competitive, destructive and do not support each other. They assume the worst about their people and treat them that way. High pressure, make you feel like you can't take any time off, then bother you on vacation when you do take time

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Berger Singerman, P A

    Pros

    Nice office and administration tries to make it a fun place to work. Alot of 5k events to participate and encourage teamwork

    Cons

    Administration pushes for it to be a great place to work, but too much favoritism with paralegals that have been there for ten plus years. Not equal pay for all paras. Stop throwing paras in last minute on a case and expect them to know it all.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Berger Singerman, P A

    Pros

    Hmmmm. Don't have any. I dislike this place.

    Cons

    Management is the worst. It is like working under children. No amount of work or hours is enough for this company. Sexist on every level! Lie and mislead of their intentions.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Berger Singerman, P A full-time

    Pros

    Genuinely attempts to create a pleasant working environment that rewards good employees with great salary and benefits, and aspires to idealistic goals of teamwork and respect across the board and throughout the firm. Administrative staff tends to internalize these goals, and maximize efforts through cross-task collaboration and cooperation.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, while its goals and attempts appear noble, they are not well executed above the administrative staff level. Upper-level and management practices tend to mimic familial dysfunction (e.g., lack of basic social etiquette and tact, lack of common courtesy and politeness, favoritism, sloppy labor and risk management practices, excessive preoccupation with employees' personal lives and time off work, and lack of recognition and respect for employees' personal privacy). Sadly, attempts at team spirit fail due to this pervasive upper-level dysfunction. Also, be prepared to witness multiple, at-will employee terminations and high turnover (particularly at the administrative level).
