    I worked at Jackson Lewis full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Yu can gain experience using excel and teach yourself keyboard shortcuts to get the job done more quickly. These skills can be used at future jobs.

    Cons

    The management is very one sided. You are required to do everything exactly as the attorneys would like. They are not very open to new ideas or opinions of an analyst.

    Advice to Management

    Don't always take the side of those who have been there longest. There is always more to be learned and improved upon.

    Pros

    Well respected L&E firm with several offices and attorneys. Opportunities for growth depending on practice group.

    Cons

    Pay is not as competitive as other L&E firms, and office culture can be hit or miss depending on the location.

    Advice to Management

    Send someone to Los Angeles to put the office back on track. The people who work for you are trying.

    I worked at Jackson Lewis part-time

    Pros

    Good people who care about quality work. Good location in downtown. Could be a bit more positive about rewards

    Cons

    Other than a lack of recognition for a job well done, there really are not any cons to working here.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you reward good work so the good people stay and don't leave for other firms.
