      Former Employee - Assistant 
      Doesn't Recommend

      I worked at Bracewell full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Salary was the only thing.

      Cons

      Absent Office Administrator; no communication

      Advice to Management

      Be more interactive with your staff and be available to them when needed. Provide the necessary training needed in order for the staff to do their jobs. Provide more feedback and communication about job roles. If a staff member is not performing at their maximum, instead of letting them go without warning, try other methods first.

      I worked at Bracewell full-time

      Pros

      Good place to start your career or searching for employment, then move on to long-term goals.

      Cons

      No room for advancement, based on nepotism, policies in place to allow families to stay employed and corrupted work ethics.

      Advice to Management

      Stop the nepotism and reward the ones that actually do the work.

      I worked at Bracewell full-time

      Pros

      Worked in HR for a number of years and loved it. The culture is the best part of Bracewell - a cohesive and professional yet friendly environment. Aside from being intelligent and hardworking, most employees are extremely down-to-earth, polite and genuinely fun to work with.

      Cons

      A small number of attorneys aren't particularly pleasant or polite (especially when speaking to staff), but there are "bad apples" at pretty much any large company. Management is slow to give raises/promotions to staff and associates who deserve it- but, if you make enough noise and keep pushing the issue, they will do it.

      Advice to Management

      Listen to and REWARD the hardworking non-managerial staff members - they are often the ones with the most information and the best ideas. Their opinions should hold more weight, since they are "in the trenches" every day (rather than looking from above and supervising). Overall, you all do great job!
