"It's all about who you work for."

I have been working at Devine, Millimet & Branch, P.A. full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Comfortable working environment and kind, plesant co-workers. Continental breakfast for staff every Friday. Free soda fountain.

Cons

The salaries are low compared to other mid-size firms in the area. It's a bit old fashioned and segregated, with support staff not included in many functions which can be demoralizing. We are often told the firm is in good shape financially with the irony being that this is said around the time of a salary freeze or layoffs.

Advice to Management

Please provide more incentives for good staff to stay. This should include being informed about what is happening within the firm more often. If things are going to change, call meetings to let us know what is going on; not everything needs to be a secret.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for growth early on as an Associate. It's fun to work for a mid-sized firm that competes with big Boston firms. There are opportunities that young Associates have at Devine that they wouldn't dream of at a Boston firm until well into their third or fourth year as an Associate.

    Cons

    Becuase Devine is smaller than the Boston firms, the salaries are substantially lower. The pay, however, is still very competitive in comparison to firms north of Boston and in New Hampshire.

    Advice to Management

    It would be helpful to know more about the career path to partnership, so as to be better able to strategize one's growth.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The money was good, many of my fellow secretaries were good friends. The HUman Resources Director tried to make it tolerable.

    Cons

    Working with mega egos that lawyers have. One attorney inherited most of her clients yet thought she was self made...her fellow partners laugh at her as she sits at her computer speaking to clients while playing solitaire

    Advice to Management

    None they wouldn't listen anyway...
