    I have been working at Ballard Spahr full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Family friendly atmosphere. No big egos.

    Cons

    HR is a bit chatty. Working from home is allowed and paralegals/attorneys are provided laptops, but, you catch flack for working from home.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees, especially those who generate money for the firm, like professionals.

    I have been working at Ballard Spahr full-time

    Pros

    Partners and administrative team are engaged and easy to talk to. There's a lot of free food and options for employees to engage in activities outside of work. The work week is 35 hours. Benefits are generous and the office is in a good location. Also a really nice free gym and bike room in the building. HR will offer advancement opportunities when available to staff that have shown proven good work... and interest.

    Cons

    The main office is in Philadelphia and DC feels like a 2nd thought sometimes.

    People are down to earth and not obsessed with hierarchy. Matters are leanly staffed so you get a lot of ownership and experience quickly.

    Cons

    Bonuses are below market and there is a wide range in bonuses, even within class years.
