    I worked at Orr & Reno, PA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This firm is full of great people, both Attorneys and support staff. Good compensation for the market. Very flexible schedule when needed (my wife had a baby while we were here and the firm was extremely supportive). Great variety of work for young attorneys - this is a good environment for figuring out what you want your practice area to be. I had a very positive experience at Orr & Reno.

    Cons

    Lots of partners and few associates right now (2016), so associates are learning on their own to some degree.

    Pros

    Nice location in downtown Concord. The majority of the employees (lawyers and assistants) are very nice to work with. Fair pay and benefits.

    Cons

    The unprofessionalism of this firm is astounding to me. The firm administrator plays favorites and if she has it out for you - WATCH OUT. She also has been known to "play footsie" with married men and a senior member of the firm, which greatly impacted the morale. There is absolutely NO support for the legal assistants, their wants and needs are at the very bottom of the totem pole. Recently the firm applied to be listed as one of the best places to work in New Hampshire, and the employees of the firm were laughing amongst themselves at the audacity of the decision. Of course the firm was not awarded this honor, as there is absolutely nothing about this firm that would warrant being a "best" place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at the management style of your firm administrator. Having affairs with senior partners and having personal vendettas against employees is no way to run a business or keep people happy (unless, of course, you are the senior partner...)

    Pros

    Good group of folks, nice cozy environment.

    Cons

    I think they're hurting for revenue from clients. Also, some of the office-furnishings for young associates are dated

    Advice to Management

    Keep the associates in the loop more. Don't bring in summer people and give the impression that there's a job at the end when there is not.

    Pros

    Orr & Reno is a great firm. Sophisticated work, great clients, work-life balance, collaborative working environment, and competitive pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Succession planning is important and the firm is focused on the next generation.

    Pros

    A few good people and better than average benefits are the only reason people work for Orr & Reno. It is certainly not for the atmosphere or management.

    Cons

    The style of the administration is the main issue. People are too frightened of upsetting the apple cart and losing their job that they will put up with it. This has created an atmosphere that is toxic. Moral is so low but it has been that way for so long that it has become the standard and the management have convinced themselves that this is normal.

    Advice to Management

    Your standing and reputation in the business community is at such a low level that it is embarrassing. The remedy is simple.
