    I worked at Best Best & Krieger full-time

    Pros

    BBK has a lot of attorneys and support staff to get work done. The employees bond together and this really creates an atmosphere for people to thrive.

    Cons

    They undervalue their support staff, working long and tireless hours, making it hard to want to stay when you can work less for same pay elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that the support staff enables the attorneys to do what they do best. Give the tools and the requisite compensation to keep going.

    Pros

    Small collegial atmosphere; dedicated and talented staff; highly qualified lawyers with specialized municipal law expertise in a full range of critical practices

    Cons

    Underqualified and uncreative marketing leadership; loss of attorneys in key areas resulted in voids in these areas that have not been addressed

    Advice to Management

    Continued attention to the advocacy/lobbying group, especially growth of base in Sacramento; more strategic and creative business development especially in annual and long-term direction

      I worked at Best Best & Krieger

      Pros

      Great work/life balance; great career move. Great mentors, attorneys & staff. Great work experience. They really take care of you professionally & personally. Great firm name, too, that holds a lot of credibility when seeking opportunities.

      Cons

      Pay scale is kinda low compared to market, but you have more flexibility w/work schedule than most firms. It's up to you what you value most.
