    Positive Work Environment

    Jul 15, 2022 - Document Center Operator in Chicago, IL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -Manageable workload and opportunity for growth and training. -Hybrid/Remote schedule -Nicest lawyers I have ever worked for in a law firm capacity -Management genuinely cares for staff -Toxic abuse/disrespect of any sort is not tolerated, firmwide and management backs us up.

    Cons

    -Very bad and slow technology. -Expectations and pressure can sometimes be unreasonable to fulfill more than what we are capable of with not enough staff. -Unfortunately and common with after hours shift, exclusion from firm events and such. Also the ability to not be permanently & fully remote due to our hours for safety reasons. There are no exceptions or flexibility, ever.

    Pros

    Diversified array of talent and business practices. Small enough to have somewhat of a familial teamwork vibe. This is a great place to start a career or build a career in the legal industry. In general, the corporate culture here highly encourages a culture of wellness.

    Cons

    Certain groups experience high turnover. Certain positions do not offer the most competitive salaries. The firm is

    MicroManagement at its finest

    Mar 1, 2022 - Senior Billing Coordinator in Chicago, IL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You can work from home 2 days out the week They’re located by the RiverWalk so you can enjoy your lunch by the steps.

    Cons

    -Pushiest attorneys in Chicago. They send you a request and want it complete by the end of the day. Doesn’t matter how busy you are. If you don’t complete, they’ll call your boss. -There’s no real training -They monitor what time you come in and -lecture you if you run late. Doesn’t matter if you make the time up. -If you’re new, they want you in your desk from lunch by 2pm, but the veteran billers can go whenever they want. -They favor the longer tenured billers. -They don’t know how to manage new staff. All their staff has been there for so long they expect zero mistakes from new staff. -High Staff turnover -No opportunities for advancement. They hire from outside.

    Mixed feelings

    Oct 6, 2021 - Legal Secretary in Chicago, IL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Great staff - Most attorneys are respectful/nice - Fair PTO (starting off at 3 weeks vacation, then 4 weeks after 10 years, etc.) - Worked from home during COVID, no loss in pay - Jeans on Fridays - Longevity of employees - Wellness events, fun training, parties - Beth and Andrea are phenomenal trainers (clear & concise) - Free coffee/drinks - 35 hr work week - Teaming of secretaries just started, and seems to work well (easier to go on vacation without worrying about your desk being covered) - The attorneys I work for are awesome - nicest people I've ever had

    Cons

    - Many secretaries great have been here a long time, but as of late, we've lost a ton of them - Need a hybrid, remote or flexible hours options. COVID has shown we can work well at home, and for most of us, we are more productive, less stressed, and happier working at home. - While things are changing for the better tech-wise, there's constantly something new, and it can be hard to keep up with - HR doesn't listen to employees and make changes - Old school, large law firm feel (whereas, a few years back it felt like one big, happy family) - Holiday bonus is peanuts compared to other large law firms (I think it's about one weeks' pay) - Raise percentages are pretty low, and I don't believe it's merit based anymore

    Pros

    Firm has a hybrid model. I hope that this is the new norm. Morale is higher. Overall nice staff.

    Cons

    Two person teams are not feasible. There should be at least three. Secretary has to cover the other secretary's time slot if the other secretary is out of the office.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - The support staff are amazing; individuals have been with the firm for 20+ years in many departments and most are happy to assist with anything. - The attorneys are easy to work with. - Benefits are great; medical, dental, vision, 401K match and profit sharing. - Opportunities to cross train with multiple departments/groups if you are proactive.

    Cons

    - The firm is struggling with adjusting to the 21st century, both technologically and culturally. The lack of flexible/remote work options are truly detrimental. - Required staff to return to an office setting while the pandemic is still in effect. - Very separate 'cultures' for support staff and attorneys; almost like two separate firms.

    Severe micromanagement - borderline workplace bullying

    Oct 17, 2021 - Conflicts Analyst 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Co-workers are friendly & easy to work with.

    Cons

    Supervisor severely micromanages every little aspect of job. Very condescending & confrontational via work email. One error on a report, which was usually result of difference in opinion, and supervisor would have a meeting to discuss procedures. If I was late, supervisor would constantly ask why I was late. Was warned of write-up after only 4 late arrivals in more than half a year. Even after supervisor said my work was great, trusted me to get my work done & I process requests at an above satisfactory pace, still severely micromanaged. Would text me during my days off to ask when I can attend a meeting the next day. Micromanaged every aspect of projects, assignments, requests, response times to emails & Jabbers, lunch (if I ended up taking later lunch than expected because of a request), etc. I can see why there's high turnover for such a small conflicts team.

The Vedder Price Human Resources team is conducting their weekly check-ins a bit differently during the COVID - 19 stay at home orders. Virtual video meetings have been a great way Vedder Price teammates have stayed connected while working remotely during this unprecedented time.
