    I worked at Butler and Hosch full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Direct supervisor was nice and left experienced employees to do their work without much interference; office space was nice and convenient to lunch places

    Cons

    My supervisor had no support or guidance from her superiors out of state; firm lacked the financial resources to do what it was hired to do and fully represent its clients; layoffs were frequent leaving a skeleton crew to accomplish the same amount of work; firm shut down owing employees and vendors millions

    Advice to Management

    Give up trying to practice law or run a business. Help your husband source products to sell in his boutique.

    I worked at Butler and Hosch full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good work environment in the Columbia, SC office; Good vacation policy; Other attorneys had good experience and were willing to assist when necessary

    Cons

    Expensive health insurance; Local management lacked resources from headquarters to make the office successful; Company went bust without making last payroll leaving each employee owed thousands

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps the strangest place I have ever worked. There was a cult of personality around Bob Hosch, who never really seemed interested in the business except taking out cash. The firm had a lot of potential that was just squandered.
