    I have been working at Sanford Heisler Sharp full-time

    Pros

    There are a lot of great people at the firm, and to me that makes it hard to beat. The work environment is friendly and respectful. I enjoy my co-workers and supervisors. We work long hours, but taking on a project with a team of people who you respect and like makes all the difference in the world. I have also never had problems taking vacations or taking time to address family issues.

    Cons

    Have to be willing to put in long hours.

    I have been working at Sanford Heisler Sharp as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Sanford Heisler Sharp truly believes in helping those who need it most. Our attorneys make sure the client's voice is heard -- whether in a courtroom or in an arbitration setting. When one of our clients has a successful claim, the entire law firm celebrates because it was truly a team effort.

    Cons

    The only issue is if you don't enjoy working hard, then this is not the place for you.

    I worked at Sanford Heisler Sharp full-time

    Pros

    Pay is decent for this industry. Lots of substantive work, but much is due to work load/ under-staffing.

    Cons

    No one seems happy. Extremely stressful work and very little recognition - boss rarely knows what people are working on. Heard cases are doing poorly and many have quit in past 6 months
