    I have been working at Simon & Simon, PC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have worked at Simon & Simon for a few years and can say that this is a great place to work. Whether you have experience in this field or not, they will hire anyone who is determined, driven and has a good work ethic. Hard work does not go unnoticed at Simon & Simon either. Those who are dedicated and go above and beyond can be promoted to team leads or managers after completing a training program to help you...

    Cons

    I honestly don’t have many. All companies have flaws I’m sure but Simon & Simon continues to grow as a firm and always looks out out for their employees which I think is key for any company.

    I have been working at Simon & Simon, PC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I’ve worked at S&S for more than a year. This is a great place to learn the legal field. I’ve had the opportunity to work my way up in a short amount of time. If you are hard working, dedicated, and willing to put in the time than this is the place for the right person. You can thrive if you have the motivation and a positive attitude.

    Cons

    High work volume but manageable.

    Advice to Management

    continue training and offering opportunities for people to grow.

      I have been working at Simon & Simon, PC full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      I have been working here for about 2 years now and I can say that I love working here. Staff is very nice and professional. Management is very helpful and easy going. If you experience an issue or are having trouble with anything, management takes the time to sit down with you and guide you on how to succeed here. The CEO personally works with each team and walks around making sure everyone is okay. There is plenty...

      I have been working at Simon & Simon, PC full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      ---Getting out early on Friday's is great (though days can feel long Mon-Thur) ---Coworkers are as a whole pretty great. Most everyone is in their 20s and 30s. ---There is almost always work to be done so you will not get bored ---The training is getting better, they will not just throw you in and expect you to hit the ground running. ---CEO and COO are pretty nice and do work with nearly everyone...

      Cons

      ---It is a strict office environment. Very low tolerance for lateness and cell phone usage. Not big fans of you talking with your coworkers either. Particularly, cell phone usage is very strict. They do not want you using it in the office areas even before and after hours. I think this could do with a little bit of loosening. ---KPI does not seem like the best way to gauge work in a law firm. Too many variables...

      Advice to Management

      ---Keep listening to your employee's and take their advice seriously even if you disagree with it. Things seem to be getting better so don't get complacent and keep trying to find ways to make your employees happy. ---Fewer meetings ---Loosen up and put more trust in your employees. There are a lot of great workers that probably leave because they feel like they are micromanaged. ---Focus on doing things...

      I have been working at Simon & Simon, PC full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      I have been working at Simon & Simon for a year now and I can honestly say this is the greatest work environment I have ever been a part of. I have been able to learn so much within this year. I love how helpful management is and how everyone here is a team player. I am thankful to be able to be a part of this growing firm!

      Cons

      There are no downsides that I can honestly write. This firm is constantly growing and our management staff always keeps everyone updated with any changes!

      Advice to Management

      Keep up the good work! I have noticed the effort to make what we do rewarding and fun place to work.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I have been working at Simon & Simon, PC full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Possibly the only thing that be deemed a positive is leaving early on Friday. But even this is held over your head.

      Cons

      Well, all management with the exception of very few are extremely passive aggressive. Next, many of the individuals working in upper level positions are extremely unqualified. Management is not willing to help and I have even been told to google the answer to my question.

      Advice to Management

      reevaluate your management

      Pros

      I have been working at Simon & Simon for over a year now and can confidently say this is the greatest work environment I have ever been a part of. I have worked at a few different law firms before, but nothing compares to the experience I have gained here. Simon & Simon works closely with those interested in advancing their career and really invests in each employee personally. You will always feel appreciated...

      I have been working at Simon & Simon, PC full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Simon and Simon value their employees, if they see you are doing a good job they will promote you, give you more responsibilities, and ask for help training new employees. I have been with the company a little over 6 months, and I have not been this happy with a job in a while. I came from a place that did not value employees, that did not pay their employees based on their skills and contributions to the office, or for...

      Pros

      During my time at Simon and Simon, I have learned so much about the PI world and about myself. Simon and Simon has given me the opportunity to grow with the firm. Simon and Simon promotes from within which shows that hard work pays off. Since I started here, Simon and Simon has always worked with the staff to continue to make improvements. Most recently, the Brown Bag Lunch event promotes transparency and it has yielded...

      Cons

      The fast-paced environment can be stressful at times, but the management team works well with employees to try to mitigate this. They really take the time to work with you and help you to improve and manage your time.
