"A nice place to work but no vision at the top"

I have been working at Calfee, Halter & Griswold full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

It is very collegial, and not a place where FaceTime is important. People have lives outside the office and it is not a high pressure atmosphere.

Cons

Salaries have been flat, headcount is shrinking, and there does not seem to be any plan to reverse the decline. The firm seems to lack any vision, while competitors have grown, added offices and seem to be "on the move."

    Pros

    Benefits at Calfee are great at all levels. They know how to put together an impressive benefits package.

    Cons

    Communication is poor. Workplace management is poor. Morale is poor. Attitudes at all levels are poor. Work-life balance is poor. Room to grow is nonexistant. There is a definite clique of people to watch out for. There is nowhere to go to report issues or concerns without tattling. Many staff, support and non, are inflexible and whisper behind your back.

    Advice to Management

    Address morale. Address morale. ADDRESS MORALE.
    Look for those who block opportunity for growth and weed them out. The firm is stale and the work seems sub-par. Shake out the curtains. Bring in new blood. Implement a 6-month review policy for ALL employees.


  2. "Too much office politics"

    I worked at Calfee, Halter & Griswold full-time

    Pros

    Started out and it pretty good. Clean work environment, lots of inside the office perks (food, coffee machines, fitness opportunities).
    Can introduce you to some movers and shakers in community.
    They do invest in a fair amount of professional development.

    Cons

    Lots of office politics at play - trying to bring you down to boost them up and whisper behind your back. Aggressive and negative work atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Revisit your company culture and invest in an approach where people feel comfortable expressing their concerns.
    Tell people what they're doing well once in a while.
