    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Benefits are great. My assignments are great to work with. My coworkers are also great.

    Cons

    Management doesn't listen. There is too much bureacracy and management needs to listen to "staff" needs, and not just "lawyers."

    Advice to Management

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Firm name recognition for lateral moves to another firm. Benefits.

    Cons

    No real leadership. Firm lacks individuals who understand a team concept. Others in management seem not as helpful when a tight deadline is looming. Employee morale always seemed low and there was too much micromanaging without a true mentoring. Mentoring and refrain from all the negative chit chat about this lawyer or the next lawyer. Hold people accountable, even upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your ears open and act when there is incompetence. Don't let people stay on at the firm who have a problem with fostering a team atmosphere. Stop being afraid to delegate.
