    Losing steam

    May 14, 2014 - Small Department in San Francisco, CA

    Pros

    Overtime is frowned upon. Location is awesome and Bart is right downstairs.

    Cons

    HR manager walks around fishing. Creates an environment of distrust. Slowly taking away benefits. Staff is becoming less important to management. Cutting costs is more valuable to management than good employees. Raises have been horrible the past 6 years. They used the economy as an excuse when the company stayed highly profitable. Politics.

    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.

    A ghost of itself

    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.
