    I have been working at Duane Morris full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits. Friendly working environment. Comfortable work setting. Reasonable dress code. Helpful IT department. They like to promote from within. After hours assistance available. Up to date equipment. Helpful support staff. Just an all around nice place to work.

    Cons

    Billiable hours requirement is too high. How they calculate PTO time is confusing. Not much room for advancement for staff members. I am digging here... It's a really great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    To have biannual or annual meetings of the firm's paralegals in order to create a support network.

    I worked at Duane Morris (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pros working in this office.

    Cons

    The Palo Alto office assigned lunch times (micromanages everything), was constantly watched and expectations are not realistic. The attorneys treat the staff badly, you are screamed at and talked down to. During my time in the office, no consistency in workloads. The constantly go through staff and say the staff is the problem.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the micro managing partner, she is ruining your name here in Silicon Valley.

    Amazing team of people and the best boss you could ask for. My first job out of school and it was a great place to start.

    The design work is related to law, so you have to appreciate a corporate environment.

    Advice to Management

    Organization is key!
