    I have been working at Goodwin for less than a year

    Pros

    Good work environment, firm keeps up with technological advancements, good benefit package, salaries are good, industry standard, overall it's a nice place to work

    Cons

    There's not a lot of advancement opportunities. It doesn't seem to be a priority. They could be more liberal with the bonuses. That affects the firm's morale

    Advice to Management

    Think about the affect of the firm's decisions on the people who work there. There's definitely a disconnect with respect to that at this firm.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Goodwin full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits, good camaraderie among staff. Great work-life balance.

    Cons

    Staff treated as costs and generally undervalued by management. Little corporate culture. Low compensation with minimal raises (if any) across the board for staff.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating legal secretaries like 2nd class citizens and give them the respect they deserve. Compensate fairly. Encourage a more friendly corporate culture (family company BBQ, ice cream socials, etc.)

    I have been working at Goodwin full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The upper managment truly cares about everyone. People are genuine and caring. You do not need to walk around with armor to deflect the knives being thrown in your back.

    Cons

    Middle management is always changing and not for the better. For the most part you are treated as a responsible adult not a child who needs a scolding. Second and third chances are given for misdeeds.

    Advice to Management

    Don't stop caring and sharing. Things are improving in the moral department because you care and listen.

    Excellent, hand-picked team. A spirit of generosity and collaboration.

    Poor/outdated software applications for Billing, Records and Kronos (!???).
