    I have been working at Scott + Scott full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is an amazing place to work. Smart people and great cases. There is a real sense of camaraderie among the attorneys

    Cons

    No real downside, but this is a challenging job. To be successful, one has to stay focused and work hard.

    Advice to Management

    Top management should try to foster a greater sense of cohesion among the firm's office and stay involved in the different practice areas.

    I worked at Scott + Scott full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The firm give you as much responsibility and autonomy as necessary to succeed. You can rise and fall at your own discretion. Everyone is affable and caring, but the power structure is quite rigid.

    Cons

    The room for advancement is limited as there are a lot of partners for a firm of its size. Resources are support staff is limited as well. Pay is less than competing securities/antitrust plaintiff firms.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more smart associates/contract attorneys and less lateral partners. More support staff is needed as well.

    I have been working at Scott + Scott full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Everyone works together well and there is a good spirit of camaraderie. A lot of very smart and capable attorneys at the firm. Work on a lot of huge cases.

    Cons

    Some partners are difficult to work with. Sometimes there is too much work to go around for too few junior attorneys. Can be stressful at times.

    Advice to Management

    Higher level management needs to be more involved in certain practice areas. Sometimes a lot of things can happen without much oversight.
