    I worked at Thompson Hine full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very nice main office in Cleveland, free food, many nice people, and the firm has a good reputation as a general practice law firm (at least in the Cleveland area).

    Cons

    The firm has a very good reputation in Cleveland for general business and product liability litigation. That being said, some other practices are not strong at all. The IP group is a complete mess, and should be avoided at all costs. The clients are figuring out many IP attorneys are clueless and are pulling their business. The work load is unstable at best. Many partners and associates are leaving due to this. They are hiring new patent associates, but more often than not there is not enough work to keep them busy - and then the associates are asked to leave.

    Also, the pay is way below market. They'll tell you that you will get a bonus, but you probably won't. If by chance you bill past your minimum and do, the bonus is so low it's like an hourly wage of a Walmart manager.

    Advice to Management

    You should concentrate more on a few practice successful groups, and get rid of the rest of them.

    Pros

    Very family friendly company to work for.

    Cons

    Lack of long-term vision impacting investment, hiring, and other business development decisions. Most analysis made based on impact in any given year, but not 5 or 10 years down the line.

    Pros

    Generally firm management is very supportive, bureaucracy is low-key. Struggles are due to industry pressures, not internal issues.

    Cons

    Upper level attorneys are hit-or-miss as far as collaborating with younger attorneys.
