    I worked at Morris, Manning & Martin full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Do not micromanage you, expect you to do your job to the best of your abilities. Great benefits including insurance, profit sharing and generous time off.

    Cons

    Upper management getting worse over the years, less and less bonuses etc.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the 17 pillars of success and put them back into use.

    I worked at Morris, Manning & Martin full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    MMM has a strong client base and some good departments (e.g., real estate and technology)

    Cons

    Steer clear of corporate. The group is poorly managed with prima donna partners, who are highly focused on protecting their turf and their comp, but not capable of (or interested in) fairly or effectively managing their associates.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be the firm you advertise, with support for work/life balance and superior associate training. Louise Wells can only do so much from the top down. Someone needs to focus on the bottom of the pyramid and bolster the confidence and enthusiasm of the associate ranks.

    I worked at Morris, Manning & Martin full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This was a very entrepreneurial firm with quick advancement potential for some. The firm has a very good client base with a focus on less of the institutional clients of other major law firms.

    Cons

    This firm is poorly managed as is still trying to operate as a true partnership despite having to many equity partners to make such an operational framework efficient. The firm management makes no effort to curb unacceptable behaviors of equity partners.

    I worked at Morris, Manning & Martin full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Health and insurance benefits offered are pretty good. The work force is older this is very important to have to offer employees, unfortunately the not-so-great employees stay for this reason which makes it difficult to get rid of them.

    Cons

    Camaraderie is non-existent. Need to work harder at involving the entire firm in activities and this may foster a better work atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be more transparent. Being more transparent may give employees more of a forum to voice opinions that may help the firm grow.

    I have been working at Morris, Manning & Martin full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I just started working here and I absolutely love this place. Very pleasant atmosphere! I will never leave this firm! The people are awesome and the management team are a awesome group of people. This by far is the best company I ever worked for!

    Cons

    I have absolutely no complaints about this place. I wish all of the previous firms I work for was this great...I would probably still be there!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Morris, Manning & Martin full-time

    Pros

    I've worked for 7 law firms in my 26 year legal career, and Morris, Manning & Martin by far has the best salaries and benefits for staff. That's probably why staff stay here forever and retire from the firm. I plan to retire from MMM as well! I feel very supported from all departments (HR, Accounting, IT, Marketing) and from management. MMM just can't be beat!

    Cons

    I can't think of a single negative, honestly.

    I worked at Morris, Manning & Martin full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are top drawer, great Buckhead location, and nice decks to enjoy lunch on.

    Cons

    No room for growth, non existent HR for staff, large disconnect between attorneys and staff. There's no one really to stand up for you, and gone are the days of moving people around to different teams. Some groups better than others. The no jerk policy went out the window with the recession. I hope things turn around for the positive.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your entire team. Staff help partners make money, they're support and effort should be greater appreciated. What happened to the wonderful culture of the firm?

    Pros
