    I worked at Weinberg, Wheeler, Hudgins, Gunn & Dial (More than a year)

    Pros

    People there are friendly, they are very cooperative and have team spirit. They are probably the best defense law firm in Atlanta.

    Cons

    They use "floaters" and put them with attorneys without even giving them the benefit of an interview to determine compatibility.

    Advice to Management

    Conduct internal interviews or hire people specifically to work for specific attorneys. Teamwork requires compatibility as working together is actually a relationship.

    Beautiful office
    Diverse work environment

    Cons

    Abusive behavior by the attorneys is encouraged
    HR a puppet of sociopathic leadership

    Advice to Management

    Hire a neutral consultant to give feedback on the morale problem. You need to treat the staff as people not numbers.
