    Pros

    SHB is a great place to be and to gain a lot of experience. There are some great people in the records department.

    Cons

    SHB does not pay well, and will work employees on all levels to death without compensating them. If you are not an attorney you do not feel as important. Many of the partners are not friendly and treat professional staff like "the help". If you are a lower level employee expect to do paralegal or higher level work of which you will not be compensated for. There are many privileged behaving people walking those halls!

    Advice to Management

    Improve work relations between lawyers and professional staff. Revisit the average pay of your employees compared to the job they perform.
