    Pros

    Decent salary, pleasant work environment. One of the better law firms to work for in LA.

    Cons

    HealthCare cost is high. There can be a bit of drama (but what company doesn't have some) and HR can be slow to respond.

    I worked at Hooper, Lundy & Bookman full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most partners have deep knowledge of healthcare law. Lots of resources to help answer any question. Opportunity to learn many different areas of healthcare law.

    Cons

    Not much help in developing a book of business in San Diego office. Leaders of the litigation department can be abusive at times when they are insecure about their own positions with a client.

    Advice to Management

    Train lateral attorneys in the same manner that you train new associates. Make a greater effort in nurturing the careers and books of business of younger attorneys. Upgrade IT as it is terrible.


  4. "Work Ethic....."

    Pros

    The best reason at the point is to get the experience and move-on.

    Cons

    There's alot of mistrust. The office is divided because of deception and favortism. Unethical attorney's and staff.

    Advice to Management

    I would tell them that potential employees shows be told the truth about how this law firm is run, no leadership skills in management, no honesty, no communication. Make sure when you hire an office manager that she has had some experience or at least the attitude that she knows what she's doing. I would also tell management the person doing the actual job should be the person that gets the pay.
