    I worked at Fowler White Boggs Banker full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Was a great company with excellent benefits.Great people and a great work environment. All around great place to work.

    Cons

    Firm got in trouble financially. Despite admin saying that they weren't. They were bought out and I watched a lot of co-workers loose their jobs and the atmosphere under the new firm is far from the same. New benefits aren't as good and it has more of a corporation feel rather than the warm family feel from before.

    Advice to Management

    They should have taken care of the departing people a little better.

    I worked at Fowler White Boggs Banker full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    great benefits, flexible schedule, nice environment, many tram building activities, pleasant environmemt

    Cons

    At times I worked for for attorneys, when was hired to work for two. My first day they threw in a third attorney that had never been mentioned. This would have made a difference in my salary negotiations. They play favorites, if you work for a "rainmaker" you aren't held to the same standard or any standard at all while the rest of us are working 10 to 12 hour days with no end in site and never catching up.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the staff, they are the lifeblood of the organization, and are the ones who make sure the attorneys look good.

    Pros

    FWB truly cares for their employees and works hard to make sure your work environment is enjoyable.

    Cons

    Although they are generous with their paid time off (PTO) you need to remember that any time you need off - doctor appointments, sick, funerals, vacation - every hour you are not at the office is subtracted from your total PTO - there is no comp time.

    Advice to Management

    Consider adding Aflac as an insurance benefit - fully funded by the employee.
