  4. "Litigation Paralegal"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at Kenyon

      Pros

      Good office location. Battery park is pretty and lots of food options.

      Cons

      Bad management. Attorneys are always demanding things late without a notice. Expect no work-life balance and low pay compare to other paralegals.

      Advice to Management

      Care more about the people who work for you.

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Kenyon

      Pros

      Was able to work independently. Attorneys, when not swamped, would explain the rules and what it was they needed. Most of the staff would be great team workers.

      Cons

      Not good guidance from supervisors - possibly too stressed but when asked a question either wrong info was given or spoken to in not so nice a manner. Difficult and unapproachable, so had to do a lot of research on one's own. Toward the end, no one would give any instruction.

      Advice to Management

      Get proper guidance, instructions and updates to each and every staff member under their watch, without having to beg for info. In other words - SHARE THE KNOWLEDGE!

      I worked at Kenyon

      Pros

      Good work. The firm has traditionally been strong on the litigation side, in both life sciences and tech and electronics.

      Cons

      Heavy life sciences, but could use more biotech work.

      Advice to Management

      Like most firms, work on distribution of work to associates and ensure a variety of experiences. Otherwise, no suggestions or advice.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Kenyon full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Lawyers and staff are generally friendly

      Cons

      Kenyon has lost many partners to other firms. Currently in merger talks. Will the firm cease to exist soon?

    • "Good learning experience"

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

        I worked at Kenyon full-time

        Pros

        Friendly people, interesting work, knowledgeable attorneys, lots of resources and support. Location is next to 4-5 subway with great views of statute of Liberty

        Cons

        Support staff is of mixed helpfulness. Some are great and detail oriented, others try and mean well but don't have enough experience and have to be frequently coached.

        Advice to Management

        Shift associates around so that they each have opportunities work with different partners on a wider variety of projects and assignments outside particular niches.
