    Pros

    Nice office in nice location near places to get lunch, IT support. Coffee flows all day. Air conditioning. A place to park your car.

    Cons

    Nightmare law firm. Disrespectful treatment towards women from certain partners, no support from management, no communication with certain partners, not acknowledged for going beyond the job tasks required. I could go on but It will be a waste of my time. Beware - unless you get lucky and get on a nice team .... and they are not going to be honest when they hire you.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest when you hire if it is a person that cannot keep an assistant or paralegal!

    Pros

    You have a broad degree of autonomy within the firm and are trusted to do your job with minimal oversight. There are frequent opportunities to take on more challenging work and learn new skills. The culture of the firm is entrepreneurial and those who take their own initiative are generally rewarded. Enterprising individuals (including staff) and those who work hard WILL receive recognition for their efforts. The support staff, including HR and IT, are excellent and prompt with delivering all kinds of assistance. The firm rewards loyalty and welcomes back good employees who wish to return to work there.

    Cons

    The downside to having little to no oversight as a staff member is that when you run into issues with another employee, senior staff and/or upper level management will seldom step in to resolve them. It is often difficult to get attention from these individuals when other problems arise. In Operations, you will often be pulled in many directions by several different staff and/or attorneys on any given day, leading to occasionally long hours and frustrating working conditions. In addition, some more senior staff members will task newer employees with complex assignments and give them little to no instruction. Finally, the first-year raise I received after a year's worth of exemplary work that went well above and beyond my position's duties was very disappointing.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some more time evaluating your lower-level staff members and figure out who is essential to each office (and reward those who are accordingly). Encourage senior staff to spend time coaching newer staff members on some of the more complex tasks that can come up from time to time. Managers need to be more aware of conflicts between employees and be more aggressive with creating solutions to these problems (as rare as they are).
