    I worked at JB&R (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The staff there was generally friendly.

    Cons

    A lot of that friendly staff is gone either because of layoffs or they left hoping to get off the sinking ship. Also, there was a firm wide pay cut in 2014 and there was no indication that salaries would return to their previous level.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees, realize that they know more than you realize and when you don't provide details, understand that the rumor mill will just start up.

    I worked at JB&R full-time

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling as long as you made up the time.
    Complete autonomy over portfolio/caseload management.
    No one notices if you only work the minimum.

    Cons

    Laughable low attorney pay for the market.
    Little management/mentoring of new attorney. Was sent to court on my own after shadowing one CMC.
    Competent employees are rewarded with more work for no additional pay.
    No communication from Partners/management unless you're in the inner circle.
    Layoffs began in 2014. Firm split in 2015. Former partners embroiled in lawsuit. Fear/uncertainty rampant.
    Unquestionable loyalty expected but not reciprocated.
    Not a smart career commitment.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate to all levels of staff, not just management.
    Any increase in responsibility should come with a compensation increase.
    Competent training and mentoring of attorneys necessary.
