    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Furman Kornfeld & Brennan full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    As an associate attorney, you get a ton of experience right along managing partners. Your work is appreciated and respected, and you're given significant opportunities to "dive into the deep end." Everyone in the office is nice and bright - you can have a conversation with basically anyone.

    Cons

    Pay could be better. Billable hour requirements aren't on a biglaw scale, but they're not far off - and pay is.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate your employees more competitively and create more clear-cut paths for upward movement.

    I have been working at Furman Kornfeld & Brennan full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Working with the best trial attorneys - who take cases through trial and obtain defense verdicts on almost every case. Hands on - gain great experience as an associate while working close to successful and knowledgable partners.

    Cons

    Pay is fair. A lot of work. Under staffed and need staff with more experience. It is a huge help to have an experienced assistant. Poor management. Office politics - if they like you, you get whatever you want. If they don't like you, it's known.

    Advice to Management

    Fix workload or compensate for it. Management is weak - current office manager does not keep matters confidential and gossips a lot about attorneys and staff. Need better management and treat others fair.
