I worked at Hardin, Kundla, McKeon & Poletto full-time
A good place to work
Some things were not good
I worked at Hardin, Kundla, McKeon & Poletto full-time (More than a year)
Excellent place to start a legal career; good mentorship and guidance (depending on who you work for); good work-life balance (2000 billable hours/year)
very little growth opportunity, no bonuses (except for holidays), no formal reviews, no incentive to go above the billable hour mark
Advice to Management
institute a formal review process and provide bonuses for attorneys who meet and exceed billable hour requirement
I have been working at Hardin, Kundla, McKeon & Poletto full-time (More than a year)
Mid-size firm with small firm feel due to separation of litigation files into "units"
Able to take on a lot of responsibility without micromanagement by partners
Free CLEs regularly offered at the office
Lack of transparency from office management regarding benefits prior to hiring. Recently found out the 1 year probationary term before becoming eligible for the 401K is really 1 year plus 1000 hours. Negotiating your salary based upon benefit information that was faulty is not a good way to start.
Annual reviews are less "annual" and more every 18 months.

They were a reliable place to work, they paid well, gave bonuses at Christmas and if you followed the rules and did your work as outlined by the attorney you worked for, you would have no problems.
The firm is very demanding as to the work. The work varies b y attorney and can be confusing if you are working for more than one attorney. Each secretary usually works for 3-4 attorneys. They are not always understanding when it comes to work to life balance.
