    I have been working at Epstein Becker & Green full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Director in the L.A. office. Great Billing Manager in the New York office. Enjoyed the overall firm culture as they had many events, staff appreciation days, and the attorneys and partners were very down to earth despite their busy schedules.

    Cons

    Some long term employees are not adept to change and push back new ideas. Can cause friction with newer employees offering a fresh perspective. Seems like little room for growth outside of the headquarters and DC office. Pay was average.

    Advice to Management

    Management seems to have the right ideas, trying to promote growth and improve technology, just need a little more execution to get there.

    Pros

    If you want great mentoring, lots of traditional labor work (bye bye litigation) and a growing dynamic group of coworkers, this is the place. Plenty of upward movement opportunity if you put the work in and you’re good at your job.

    Cons

    Hard to get a good assistant. Perhaps it’s the times?

    Pros

    steady income? benefits are OK

    Cons

    STAY AWAY from their immigration department. PLEASE. what you're not told during the interview: support staff is severely exploited (highest turnover i have ever seen--multiple fires and resignations every week). paralegals do a lot of work on behalf of attorneys (who always leave on time) and frequently work 80+ hour work weeks (which, given the severity of NY's taxation structure, amounts to zilch in overtime). Firm is great at presenting itself as something it's not during the interview: efficient, structured, and fair. It's far from all of those things. This is not coming from someone who is jaded, but rather an employee who cares deeply about the sanity of any prospective support staff members seeking employment at such an awful place. How they've managed to receive good reviews is beyond me.

    Advice to Management

    put your support staff. they're kind of all you've got.

    I have been working at Epstein Becker & Green full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you are an attorney who wants to practice Health law or Labor and Employment law this is the Firm you want to be at. The Firm has an entrepreneurial culture and attorneys are given interesting projects and a significant amount of client interaction very early in their career. Everybody (attorneys and staff) are genuinely nice people and that is one of many reasons why I have stayed at the Firm for 20 years.

    Cons

    The Washington, DC office is located in a quiet, more residential area, and I know that some would prefer a location that is closer to more restaurants and activities in the heart of the city. However, the DC office did just under go a beautiful office renovation and employees now have access to a gym on the premises.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be open to the ideas and suggestions of the employees at the Firm.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the positive trajectory the firm is on.

    I worked at Epstein Becker & Green full-time

    Pros

    PTO Benefits were much better than other firms.

    Cons

    Lack of management capabilities on all levels. Favoritism and Nepotism ran rampant. The firm mostly cares for attorneys, support staff are undervalued in most departments.

    Advice to Management

    Work on efficiency
