    "No advocate for employees"

    Current Employee - Administrative Assistant in New York, NY

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great benefits and as far as law firms go, this is one of the better ones.

    Cons

    There are no advocates for non-attorney's and non-managers. Speaking with HR about an issue you're having with a direct supervisor or manager only puts you on the radar so, most people (those who want to keep their jobs) will keep quiet about issues with their boss, no matter how serious it may be.

    Advice to Management

    Sadly, any advice would fall on deaf ears, but if they really wanted to change, they'd pay more attention to what's going on with their non-legal staff.


  2. "Top-Tier, Competitive Firm"

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Competitive firm and salary without the cut-throat lifestyle. The work-life balance is not ideal, but is better than one would expect from similarly situated firms.

    Cons

    Firm needs more open communication with associates.
