    I worked at LeClair Ryan full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers all across the U.S. Many opportunities to learn and grow. Competitive benefits package.

    Cons

    Internal structure was always shaking. Everyone was afraid they were going to be fired at all times.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop scaring your best employees away.


  2. "Document Review"

    Pros

    The pay was good compared to other document review companies in the area.

    Cons

    It's a contract position so you are not extremely important to the company. Many people stuffed into one office. Becomes very monotonous.

    Pros

    Office filled with great people.

    Cons

    Terrible infrastructure. Management is poor and lacking in knowledge. HR is located in Virginia and they are of no help, so save yourself the phone call. No appreciation for employees, they are overworked and underpaid. Poor raises (if any at all). Training process is essentially non-existent and severely lacking. They have many offices nationwide, but it is like they are a bunch of small offices operating separately. I guess if HAD to work here, opt for the VA office.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like they make a difference and they will.

    I worked at LeClair Ryan full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company places emphasis on teamwork. Various practice groups. Reimbursement for college education was a plus.

    Cons

    Bottom line over employees. Some of the upper management could use some serious people skills - not always friendly (people I saw everyday would pass by without speaking even when spoken to). Otherwise, don't really have too much to say about the company other than I would not want to work there again.

    Advice to Management

    Work on your people skills and show your appreciation for your administrative staff on occasions other than Administrative Staff Appreciation Week.

    Pros

    Strong leadership. Diverse practice areas and client base. Collegial working environment.

    Cons

    Large bureaucracy from an overall firm-wide perspective. However, I have heard from colleagues in other offices that this is less so in some of the smaller satellite offices located across the country.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on the needs of all employees, not simply those of the officers, shareholders and senior partners.

    I have been working at LeClair Ryan full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible work schedule including lots of opportunity to work from home. Fair salaries. Culture in Richmond HQ office is fun and collegial.

    Cons

    Little to no communication from senior management to the "worker bees". Too much "fat" at the middle management level. Takes an act of Congress before a poor worker will be terminated.

    Advice to Management

    Please emphasize communication on all levels of the firm and continue recent efforts to curb wasteful spending.
