      Positive Outlook

      I have been working at Stites & Harbison full-time

      Pros

      Friendly atmosphere, staff and attorneys are very helpful and always willing to lean a hand; most all have long tenure; well educated people but downhome feel - family and community involvement very strong.

      Cons

      Parking not paid by employer

      Advice to Management

      Subsidized parking benefit, either a percentage or flat rate, would be a wonderful incentive for employees to be granted or work towards based on their longevity with the Firm and their work ethic on a graded value.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Stites & Harbison

      Pros

      Some nice people to work with;

      Cons

      The firm use to be a great place to work but the CEO was not a good leader and the firm did not do well in the last few years. Since this is Kentucky based firm, the salaries are lower; no chance for moving up.

      Advice to Management

      Needs to pay attention and respect the employees.

      Neutral Outlook

      I worked at Stites & Harbison full-time for more than 8 years

      Pros

      Generally, nice and pleasant people to work with. Overall, very good legal practitioners.

      Cons

      Limited career options if you aren't an attorney. Generally assumes any role other than an attorney is of limited value. Not a very innovative, forward thinking organization. Content to do what has always been done. Not aligned to compete with the current legal market.

      Neutral Outlook

      I worked at Stites & Harbison for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Highly recommend professional attorney services for clients. Innovative updated computer technology to assist attorneys, paralegals & staff, and clients. Excellent benefits and vacation package.

      Cons

      Unexpected and abrupt mass lay off's of productive staff, every 1st quarter of the year, since 2008. Office politics and favoritism seem play a role of staff, who are minimally productive, to remain employed. Outsourcing positions, to a company falsely claiming expertise, in all areas of law practice.

      Advice to Management

      May all your strategic endeavors be visionary of a successful business. Best wishes.

      Pros

      Everyone's pretty friendly and usually willing to help whenver needed

      Cons

      Trying to juggle everything everyone wants you to do all at the same time

      Advice to Management

      When someone lists areas they might like to work in/assist/try, listen to them. Also if you choose someone else over them for a position, tell them why they didn't choose you.
