    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Fross Zelnick Lehrman & Zissu full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I'm a current employee at Fross and I 'd like to say that I appreciate how much management looks out for employees. The Benefits Manager and Human Resources Manager are both open and friendly and will allow you to vent about your problems without the fear of retaliation. We're all human with personal lives and I like that Fross Zelnick gets it and respects it. They actually care. They're fair.

    Cons

    I have a few minor gripes about our new office location, but that's just me personally.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for being understanding and for offering open conversation.

    I have been working at Fross Zelnick Lehrman & Zissu full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I've worked at FZLZ for around two years as a legal assistant. I have a great manager and find all of the attorneys I work with to be kind, intelligent and great resources for someone who is ultimately law school bound. My schedule is mostly consistent, with only some overtime that I can generally turn down without issue if I need to. The pay seems generous relative to my friends with similar college degrees who are working...

    Cons

    I think that whether working at FLZL is a good deal or a bad one is highly dependent on who you work for and what your long term goals are. My situation here is excellent because of I have a great boss and I do not plan to advance within the firm. If you're planning to work here for a 2-3 years before going to law school and you get a boss who doesn't expect endless overtime from you, the work will be reasonable and the...

    I worked at Fross Zelnick Lehrman & Zissu full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    1. I met a friend for life 2. Your lunch break is always an adventure being in Times Square

    Cons

    1. If you want to ruin your resume and have them fire you for nothing this is the place for you. (I personally left for my own mental health) 2. Avoid the Finance Department at all cost - upper management has no clue what they are doing and really don't care.

    Advice to Management

    Wake Up!

    I have been working at Fross Zelnick Lehrman & Zissu full-time

    Pros

    You can make a lot of money

    Cons

    Slow as hell paying you overtime. One attorney in particular will take weeks to sign off.

    Advice to Management

    Consider employee morale. It may, just may help reduce high turnover!!

    I worked at Fross Zelnick Lehrman & Zissu full-time

    Pros

    I worked as a full-time paralegal for a Partner in the International side for nearly three years. I started as an entry-level para in 2012, straight from Undergrad. My time at Fross was hands-down my greatest professional learning experience to date. I went in, terrified, knowing absolutely nothing about Intellectual Property and Trademarks or about working in the legal field. I learned so much in such a short period...

    Cons

    Now for the "cons," there really was only one, and it ultimately ended up being the reason I chose to switch firms. As other posts indicate, the pay doesn't exactly "hit the spot" if you are an experienced paralegal. However, for an entry or more junior level position, the salaries, in my opinion, are generous enough. Yes you can make more at a "big name" firm, but in my real-life experience, you are making a sacrifice...

    Advice to Management

    My advice to Management would be inform prospective employees of all of these pros and cons ahead of time. Let people know what they are signing up for so that they can make the best choice for themselves. And of course, if the budget allows for it, giving a decent bonus or yearly raise would be helpful in keeping employees happy and encouraging them to stick around long-term. Other than that, keep being awesome!

    Pros

    Fross was a great company to work for. The environment was relaxed, benefits were generous, and everyone I worked with was very kind.

    Cons

    Ultimately the salary wasn't competitive enough for NYC and the position itself is not designed for much growth.

    Advice to Management

    Offer higher salaries to legal assistants.
