    I worked at Phelps Dunbar

    Pros

    Phelps is an amazing opportunity for a paralegal to do substantive work with a top National law firm. Billables are in line with most major law firms. Knowledgeable and highly respected attorneys. The firm recognizes the value of paralegal support as a vital component of its business and treats them accordingly as members of the professional staff. Management is generally fair and humane. Good employees are recognized and efforts to retain them are made in its daily culture. As a paralegal, you are given the latitude to do your job as the professional you are, without hand-holding, micro-management, etc. Decent benefits. Nice 401(k) with vesting. Firm gatherings and parties are terrific, with no expense spared to ensure that employees and their families have a good time. Good people that becomes like a second family. Great place to work.

    Cons

    You have to pay for your own parking, which is a little expensive. Paralegals are "hourly employees," and so overtime is discouraged unless it is approved in advance. This inhibits one's ability to own a case and work it the way it should be worked.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Phelps Dunbar full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Wide variety of work for Fortune 500 or national-level clients; excellent compensation; most attorneys are married with children and respect efforts to balance work and family obligations; very good IT and research support services

    Cons

    There isn't a formal mentoring program for attorneys, so it is easy to fall through the cracks. It is also reportedly very difficult to make partner and the firm doesn't focus on retaining talent in part because of that ceiling.
