    All employees deserve respect - not just top Partners.

    Pros

    A lot of the attorneys are nice; health benefits are okay; They are flexible with work time as long as you hit 40 hours per week.

    Cons

    Low pay for admins; a handful of rude partners who can get away with murder just because they bring in the most $$$; support staff not valued. Archaic rules that don't fit with the times.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people in HR with real leadership experience and the firm will be a better place for all. Also promote from within to make the company culture better for all.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Stradley Ronon Stevens & Young LLP full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I don't really have any pros. I worked there for about a year.

    Cons

    Turnover was high and morale was low. Awful combo. To be honest, I hated my time there. They didn't pay well enough for some of the crap they expected us to take from the attorneys and their admins.

    Pros

    Salaries are some of the highest I've seen for secretary's and support staff. If you like a job to glide through, this is the place for you! Challenge will not be a part of your career here.

    Cons

    Politics govern this firm making it one of the most inefficient legal providers I have ever been exposed to or heard of. I've never seen so many people doing virtually nothing day after day after day except gossiping. Informed clients paying attention to their bills already are aware that something is seriously wrong.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Stradley Ronon Stevens & Young LLP full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stradley employs the best people. The atmosphere is friendly, yet professional. Work is very interesting. Everyone really cares about the other. When someone has a personal hardship or tragedy, everyone steps in to help. Good work is respected and rewarded. I look forward to going in every day.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work is a bit heavy and there is not enough help to get it all done.

    Advice to Management

    Get more help for the secretaries. Enlist a variety of opinions on big decisions. Otherwise, keep up the good work. The Executive Director is worth her weight in gold.

    "A firm that treats contract employees with respect"

    I worked at Stradley Ronon Stevens & Young LLP (More than a year)

    Pros

    Supervisors who do their best to keep staff attorneys informed, willingness to answer questions, flexibility in scheduling arrangements, reasonable compensation.

    Cons

    I can think of no serious disadvantages. Sometimes there was a bit of confusion as to what I was expected to do, but that is natural in a litigation setting where deadlines are often externally imposed and stringent.
