    Unrealistic Billing Requirements

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Attempts at diversity are noticeable. The pay is reasonable for support staff.

    Cons

    Defense work involves extensive daily billing. The required billing is more than your 8 hour work day, yet it is expected with no overtime. This means you do not have time for the non- billable required tasks unless you are working over your allowed daily time. Once your billing is submitted, the client audits and appeals what they feel is unjustified billing. Next, the “anonymous” firm Partner further cuts your billing. With your job depending upon your final (not worked and submitted) hours, you have no control over your employment. The firm does not take PTO days into account when calculating your billing either. The associates and support staff are under staffed. There should be a reasonable limit on the number of cases each team has, yet there is no cap.

    Mill Firm, you are a mere number

    Pros

    Great People to work with, human beings. Big Firm with support staff.

    Cons

    2400 billable hours a year. Administrative structure not conducive to caring for your health and hours take priority...always. If you use PTO a day you have to make up your missed billable hours from that PTO day later on.

    A Bully Partner no one is interested on preventing

    Pros

    Fellow employees are wonderful, very helpful, well educated, everyone in their lane.

    Cons

    As all law firms, partners are the money makers so if they are bullies they get away with it. That is the reason is a constant turnover.

    Pros

    Salary is great. Lots of good food & parties. They “try” to support morale. Unknowingly changed the course of my legal career for the better. Covered parking lot at no cost. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Mostly everything. Morale is awful. Tense atmosphere. Depending on which department Attorney’s are insufferable, condescending and power hungry. Clients unhappy with services provided

    The BEST place to work

    Pros

    CSK is wholeheartedly committed to the success and growth of its lawyers and staff, providing boundless opportunities, fair pay and benefits, dedication and understanding both personally and professionally, and a family culture unmatched by no other. I personally took the time to experience this for myself, and it is without question truth. A progressive firm with in my view the best trial lawyers in this state who are fully committed to their CSK Family and who will make all effort to accommodate one’s circumstance and need. I started here out of law school and refuse to work anywhere else.

    Cons

    I honestly know of no cons. It is best to approach any job with the expectation and understanding that through hard work you will succeed and have fulfillment. The sky is then the limit at this firm, professionally, personally, and financially.

    Pros

    Nice office space. Great health insurance benefits. HR is helpful. Some really nice partners that are helpful too.

    Cons

    Management is disorganized. It is obvious that they do not care about employees and their lives outside of work. The managing partner of the office is not good at his job.

    Pros

    Be fit package and good salary

    Cons

    This place is horrible I honestly don’t know how they are still in business it is the definition of a mill! The compensation and benefits are good but not the best out there considering the billable hours. They will start you off slow and then hike up your hours. There are associates required to bill 180-200 hrs. and there is no bonus structure. There is ZERO work life balance and the partners are backstabbing liars who with throw you under the bus to save their own skin. They do not care about you as a person or your personal life all they want is for you to Crank out billing and work product. Were you just in an accident? Did you have surgery? Are you getting married? Oh well better still get your billing in and work on your honeymoon or vacation! I would not recommend anyone work here but if you do find yourself there please learn what you can and leave ASAP do not stay longer that a year.
