    Let the HR Department do their jobs, they are there for a reason; and, stop letting the Partners make all the decisions...care more about your Staff

    I have been working at Stinson Morrison Hecker full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    If you want just a job and are not looking for anything else you might be okay.

    Cons

    Management has no clue what is going on with their staff. Staff reports directly to HR which is a conflict of interest. So staff do not have any support in any way. HR people do not know the legal field so they keep making changes that create more work for the staff. HR does not understand that the staff have spent years learning their particular field of expertise just like an attorney.

    Advice to Management

    Replace all your HR staff with qualified, experienced personnel with a legal firm background. Staff should report to their direct managers (timekeepers) and HR should be where staff goes for help and support and mediation and, of course, to facilitate hiring.
