    Pros

    The hours were reasonable. At the end the salary was pretty good.

    Associates should be mentored and given regular reviews.

    "Great place to start out"

    Pros

    - Respect is given throughout - no one is too important to answer your questions;
    - Extremely intelligent partners who you can learn a lot from;
    - Reasonable with time off requests;

    Cons

    - Not all legal departments are created equal;
    - Not very transparent review process;
    - No well established training program.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with employees. At holiday parties and other events, make an effort to get to know paralegals. Give bonuses when a paralegal completes an important project or does an extremely good job. Raises seem arbitrary and offer little incentive to go above and beyond daily routine.

    Pros

    No one bothers you or micro manages and the work gets done smoothly.

    Cons

    Should care about employees more. Used to be more family oriented but now even a raise for taking on more work doesnt happen. Disappointing. Poorly organized at times.

    Advice to Management

    Needs more structure and organization. Teams tend to fall apart due to management. This causes bad relations with clients.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Gibney, Anthony & Flaherty full-time

    Pros

    Talented legal minds who have much experience in their respective fields, people who can answer any legal question on the spot and are creative in their approach to applying and maneuvering the law.

    Cons

    The company places very little emphasis on training new employees and the communication channels between management and lower-level employees is very limited. Favoritism exists and the bureaucracy has a stranglehold over much of what we do - the ability to change the process in favor of something more efficient is impossible. The company has extremely out-dated technology and...no coffee....
