    Pros

    People are friendly and easy to work with. The work is interesting and often engaging and the benefits for attorneys are decent.

    Cons

    There seems to be a lack of direction with the firm and it doesn't feel like there's a real career track available. You'll be asked to work as much time as you have available and if you aren't, then best to consider your next step.

    Pros

    There's usually OT available if you're looking for it

    Culture is cutthroat, replaced in an instant if you're not willing to put in a ton of hours. Always concerned about how much of your work is billable

    Advice to Management

    Create a culture of friendliness, and maybe you will see less turnover

    Pros

    Nothing, place has a horrible work culture. Wish I never stepped foot inside this place.

    Work at another corporate law firm.

    Attorneys will throw you under the bus when it suits them.

    Crazy overtime with little compensation or sympathy.

    The Managing Attorney is the worst employer I've ever met in my professional career.

    Advice to Management

    Fire your Managing Attorney for the Paralegal Department
