    I worked at Fox Rothschild (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Worked at Grotta Glassman & Hoffman prior to Fox taking over. Great subject matter experts in the field of labor & employment law. Good atmosphere in the office, wide variety of large and small clients.

    Cons

    No longterm vision concerning rising stars, ultimately led to defections, becoming top heavy, and a need to be absorbed by Fox.

    Advice to Management

    Too late now, but deflate those egos and let the rising stars assume some leadership.

    I have been working at Fox Rothschild full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large company; generous vacation days

    Cons

    Corporate office does not manage satellite offices and management in one particular satellite office is corrupt, lazy and has the mentality that as long as one or two are working and holding down the fort, the rest of us don't need to be in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip; pay attention..try using the Undercover Boss mentality! What you find out will get you to clean house!!

    I worked at Fox Rothschild (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Financially sound and nice coworkers.

    Cons

    Low work ethic and morals. A claw yourself to the top of the ladder mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying, cheating and stealing. That mentality works well in the courtroom but don't treat people that way. One top person in charge of attorneys and others keeps knocking others down to be at the very top of the firm. Why is this allowed to happen??? What did they do with our COO??? Too morale for them????

    I worked at Fox Rothschild full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Your Pay is on time.

    Cons

    Uncomfortable work environment. Hard workers are not valued. Managers are allowed to lie on reviews and if you voice concern, you will be punished. Good people are passed over for promotions. Promotions are based on who you know,not your work. You may have two bosses and both will ignore you, not even a good morning. Very cold and sterile environment. Communication is a joke. If you enjoy being a jerk , if you lack communication skills, and you thrive off of making others feel uneasy and anxious Fox Rothschild is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Create a better work environment for your employees. Offer training for interpersonal communication for all employees.

    I worked at Fox Rothschild full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I had some nice co-workers and a nice Office Administrator too. Office Administrator was not allowed to evaluate my work even though she knew much more than a person in the main office who acted like she knew me.

    Cons

    Where do I begin. Paralegals are ignored. You are just supposed to bill a lot and shut up. No one to go to if you have issues who will return your calls or e-mails.

    Advice to Management

    You are too big a firm to not have a dedicated manager for Paralegals. This should be someone who has done the job and can get you help when needed.

    I worked at Fox Rothschild full-time

    Pros

    Fox Rothschild partners are truly interested in developing the associates working for them -- developing their legal skills and the marketing skills necessary to develop business to support your bid to become a partner.

    Cons

    Politics is always an issue in a big firm. In my experience, if you aren't in with the in crowd -- i.e., working for a well-connected partner -- you may be overlooked for partnership.

    Pros

    The training is great. Very nice co-workers very fair office manager

    Cons

    Some LAAs support up to 5 attorneys others only 1. Some attorneys treat LAAs like their personal slave and disrespect them and nothing is done other than allowing LAA to report bad behavior. It will improve then go back to being the same stuff different day.

    Advice to Management

    Ask L AAs about training. They do the work. Make work load for LAAs more even and fair
