    I worked at Gibbons P.C. full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fine, smart people. Beautiful offices, excellent support staff.

    Cons

    Structure that caused these people to compete against one another, very short-sighted management

    Advice to Management

    Stick to strenths, don't ventre out into new areas until you really know the playing field.

    I worked at Gibbons P.C. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Well-respected NJ based practice.

    Cons

    Salary is not commensurate with work put in. You will work the same amount as associates at NY-based firms, but will only get paid a portion of their salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Endeavor to make the work-place more transparent. Increase salary/bonus structure to more adequately reflect the good work performed by employees, and the presitige of the firm.
