    Pros

    Good benefits; great people on my team; great IT department; plenty of opportunity for continuing education; nice office near BART

    Cons

    Horrible communication between management and employees. My particular team was not treated well - we were considered to be outsiders.

    Advice to Management

    Strive to treat your employees like part of the overall team. Keep them in the loop and respond to requests for information, whether about a case or rules and regulations. Take seriously the problems presented.

    Pros

    Smart attorneys, good at what they do.

    Cons

    Lost a lot of their rainmakers in the last 5 years. The german group runs the show now; and those from other practice groups with business potential left because they felt they were on the outside looking in. Compensation rules always changing.

    Advice to Management

    The personalities are what they are and wont change.

    Pros

    Most of the staff and some attorneys are great to work with.

    Cons

    The best people have left or are leaving. Outsourcing work to another state and/or cheap contractors is the worst kind of business decision - it's devastating to the community where you do business. It used to be a good place to work.

    Advice to Management

    None.
