    I worked at Sedgwick Law full-time

    Pros

    Individual team members are really good people trying to do great work to advance the company.

    Cons

    Management can't make decisions. Paralysis by analysis, projects are difficult to get started and finished.
    Unorganized.
    Open floor plan. They indicate that they want collaboration, but get irritated when people talk.

    Advice to Management

    Make decisions and follow through to completion. To many secrets, be more transparent. Your employees are important and will define what the company can be. Treat employees more professional.

    Pros

    Nice co-workers and clean bathrooms

    Cons

    Challenging to be paid far less than industry standard for law firm but be expected to return emails at 3 am on a Saturday.

    Advice to Management

    Either pay should be commensurate with expected work or there should be work-life balance based on lower pay.
