    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.

    I worked at Epstein Becker & Green full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Longer-term managing shareholders in L.A. are great lawyers and nice people. Staff is dedicated. I felt there to be a real team effort within the LA office, where if one person had a deadline, everyone stepped up to volunteer to stay late to meet the deadline. That was a very heartening experience for me and in contrast to the prior firm where I worked. Current Century City offices were built from scratch in 2007 and are up to date.

    Cons

    In 2006 NYC honchos brought on one of the most toxic shareholders one could ever work for--Satan incarnate. L.A. office became unbearable, lawyers (both associates and shareholders) left in droves--17 lawyers left over the course of 18 months, as I recall. EBG-LA has been unable to hire and retain anyone because no one wants to work for or with this person. And it's not like this shareholder has THAT large a book that the reputation of the entire office should suffer like it has. VERY difficult to avoid working for/with this one really bad person. This shareholder permeates the entire office.

    Advice to Management

    Toss the one bad apple overboard and rebuild the L.A. office.

    The firm prides itself on being one of the best firms in its areas of core competency--labor and employment law and health regulatory

    The departure of firm partners in offices outside of NY and "DC after the Great Recession several years ago was disruptive, but the firm recovered nicely.

    Pros

    Great benefits and gifted colleagues. Strong work ethic firm that's dedicated to providing outstanding results for their clients.

    Cons

    The overall management of the firm, leaves much to be desired. Limited number of staff meetings throughout the year. Staff members are not briefed regularly about the ongoings throughout the entire firm. There's a certain "dont ask, don't tell" environment present. The firm has gone through several Office Administrators over the past couple of years. Looking forward to continued growth and the expansion of the firm once management has a better handle on things.

    Advice to Management

    Become a more inclusive firm. Bring all offices together at least once a year. On going staff meetings would be ideal, for all staff members.
