    I worked at Perkins Coie full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free Soda, Juice and Water Managing Partner is awesome! Very nice, polite and professional. Doesn't allow personal issues to cloud business decisions.

    Cons

    ADMIN STAFF & OTHER DEPT. HEADS NEED A CLASS ON COMMON SENSE Dir. of Admin has major issues. Very petty, and doesn't think with sound logic. Treats Mailroom staff as the "Hired Help" with unfortunate undertones i wont say. Acts as if staff should roll out the red carpet when she's around and should do whatever is asked. Can't even be polite and say hi when walking by. As a director, a leader, you should lead by example and unfortunately their example is a horrible one. Also, others who are in leadership positions make some of the most retarded decisions. Seems like common sense isn't common here. Trying to make sense of some of their decisions is like trying figure out how to cut butter with a wet napkin.

    I have been working at Perkins Coie full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I really enjoy working with the attorneys and the professional staff. In-house trying is available for staff.

    Cons

    Management does not always relate to the actual work being done by the timekeepers and how they need to be supported.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the timekeepers and staff more. Adding more administrative positions does not help the timekeepers get their work done.
