      Approves of CEO

      I worked at Wiggin & Dana for less than a year

      Pros

      Wiggin offers pension and decent healthcare benefits. They have several get togethers and promote a family type environment

      Cons

      The Office Support leadership is severely unprofessional. No performance feedback. No drive to better the work environment

      Advice to Management

      Give feedback to employees so they can work on where they are lacking rather than allow failure.

      I have been working at Wiggin & Dana full-time

      Pros

      Wiggin is a lovely firm with very bright, intelligent and knowledgeable people.

      Cons

      Salaries are not market worthy, bonuses are very low, there is no incentive for employees and moral is poor.

      Advice to Management

      Management needs to learn how to retain their staff.

    • "Good experience"

        Neutral Outlook

        I have been working at Wiggin & Dana full-time

        Pros

        Good clients, interesting work, and a lot of very nice people. The firm is generous allowing associates to work on pro bono and is not a sweat shop. If you miss the billable hours minimum, you simply don't get a bonus.

        Cons

        If you surpass the minimum billable hours, you are eligible for a bonus--the range of which is consistent with being a regional firm.

        Advice to Management

        Provide better training to paralegals and secretaries so that they can help attorneys be very efficient at their job.

          Cons

          National reputation not yet aligned with firm's local reputation.
