    Pros

    Local atmosphere excellent, great people in this location

    Cons

    Not the same at other locations. Too often, rainmakers (those bringing in lots of business) are not held to company stated policies of respect for all individuals. A select few (including some in positions who have no right to think so) have oversized beliefs in their sense of entitlement. As is true in most all organizations, a few bad apples ruin the whole barrel.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure all are held to the same standard. Make your on call people more accountable in their response times.

    Pros

    Coffee in the break room and a refrigerator to put your lunch in. Air conditioning. Computers. Elevators to take you up to your desk.

    Cons

    Very hi turnover of staff, attorneys and management either by getting fired or leaving in a few years. Bad behavior by attorneys is overlooked and prevalent. Arrogance abounds. Certain teams are toxic - Atlanta office ... BEWARE!!!

    Advice to Management

    hire good management. Recognize why they call it human resources, you need staff to get work out of the door, look at why you have such a high turnover and such bad morale. It actually cost you money every time you have to rehire somebody for a position. We don't care about how much pizza you feed us .... we are human and want decency.
