    Pros

    Real Team Spirit- I always felt like I was part of a team effort instead of just a secretary.
    My attorneys were very understanding when emergencies and doctors appointments came up.
    When the work became too crazy, we would discuss how to better manage priorities.
    Parking is Paid For!

    Cons

    Health Insurance could be better.

    I worked at Hall Booth Smith, P.C full-time

    Pros

    Great experience, some wonderful people to work with, flexibility when it comes to needing time off of work.

    Cons

    VERY low pay, not much room for growth, some attorneys are great to work with - others are hostile and rude, low retention rate (speaks volumes), no 2 employees are treated the same - favoritism and "who you know" play a big role in how you are treated.

    Advice to Management

    The retention of employees is extremely low. The pay is much lower than the market average. If your staff is going to take the time to train new employees, try and keep them! A free lunch once a month is not going to keep someone from leaving.

    HR is also not very welcoming or comfortable to be around. They are all very cold.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Coworkers are very friendly, and genuinely care about your well being. People work hard, but are understanding that there is a life outside of work as well.

    Cons

    Honestly, I cannot think of one.

    I worked at Hall Booth Smith, P.C full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to learn. Some partners are great to work with.

    Cons

    Too much expansion that leads to low salaries. Too much oversell as a full service firm. It’s an insurance defense litigation firm.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t pretend the firm is something that it’s not. It’s a litigation heavy insurance defense firms. Raise salaries so you can keep people. Stop opening offices. The expansion exacerbates mediocrity. The culture of making mediocre attorneys partner to increase their billing rate hurts your brand.

    I worked at Hall Booth Smith, P.C full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free lunches. Bonuses given periodically.

    Cons

    Everything. Hostile work environment. You have a target on you if you work hard or have an education. Office politics is cut throat and was there for the entertainment of some of the life failures.

    Advice to Management

    Manage your subordinates and do not facilitate the petty politics in the office. Keeping your word about advancing is also a plus. No integrity in management equals no trust in management.

    Human Resources may want to evaluate credintials and job requirements rather than some personal abstract subjective idea of who would best fit a job.

    Pros

    Consistent and positive reinforcement is a constant reminder of the support system within this firm. The relations among all employees promote a team effort for achieving goals. This is truly a firm where you are treated like family and given the trust, resources, and permission to create and build your own success story.

    Cons

    With rapid expansion of the firm, the timeline to obtain the necessary resources is often delayed.

    Advice to Management

    Continue positive reinforcement of all employees - happy workers - work happier :)
