    I have been working at Sutherland Asbill full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great salary, ok benefits, HR in Atlanta very efficient and managed well.

    Cons

    Washington staff and attorneys seems to get more perks. Staff not as skilled. And there is a lot of inefficiencies on the staff side.

    Advice to Management

    Have more fun things and celebrate more attorney wins! Maybe reorganize the staff a bit and provide training?

    I have been working at Sutherland Asbill full-time

    Pros

    - well-established firm, strong history
    - free meals
    - solid benefits/HR team
    - some employees are kind and helpful

    Cons

    - so much hand holding, it's embarrassing. Attorneys and senior staff are treated like children rather than successful working adults.
    - often thankless job, bonus was hundreds less than anticipated
    - compensation not worth the high stress and lack of work/life balance
    - often feel like being a woman in the office is a negative

    Advice to Management

    Embody the progressive and friendly firm we claim to be

    Pros

    I loved working at Sutherland. You get the genuine sense that the people you work with respect you and your work. Also, unusually for a law firm, thinking outside of the box and looking into new workflows is encouraged.

    It comes with the territory, but there were some long hours.

    I worked at Sutherland Asbill full-time

    Pros

    Worked at Sutherland for a number of years. Firm leadership is excellent and approachable. Generally good work-life balance. Attorneys are generally friendly and caring. Generous paid leave policies.

    Cons

    In recent years, the benefits, while still very good compared to many competitors, have declined quite a bit. Transparency isn't what it used to be, either, and the firm has become more bureaucratic.
