    Pros

    Nice offices, great co-workers, the latest in technology.

    Cons

    Litigation group restructured in March resulting in a big litigation secretary layoff. Firm needs to learn how to offer voluntary, attractive retirement packages to senior staff when they need to cut back or make budget. Attorney/secretary ratios getting out of control.

    I worked at Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and decent pay. Met some nice folks here.

    Cons

    Long term employees seem to be able to act unprofessionally and bully and harass their counterparts without consequences. When reported to HR, no action is taken. Partly because the people are protected by their direct managers. Makes for a difficult work environment. There's also an environment of self-entitlement that hasn't been addressed.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of laying people off to meet budget, how about cutting the foolish and unnecessary spending inside and outside of the annual budget. Quit spending money you don't have on things that aren't needed. Work on fixing the relationships between the two coasts.
