    I worked at Wolf Greenfield full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Really nice group of people.
    Senior management will remember your name. (impressive for a 300+ company).
    Good benefits, and quarterly social gatherings.
    Wicked awesome location.

    Cons

    Little room for growth for finance staff.
    They never fire, great if you´re lazy, horrible if you´re the one picking up the slack.
    Strong ¨family culture¨ can be very invasive.

    Advice to Management

    Change work assignment flow.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Managing Partner Tim Oyer is good, but as I write this I'm not sure how good. See cons.

    Cons

    Middle management "manages" by being condescending since they otherwise have zero intelligence. I left on my own terms and have no regrets. If you have an ounce or two of intelligence, don't go there. If you don't, you'll fit in nicely.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the self-important, unneeded mid level management.

    I have been working at Wolf Greenfield full-time

    Pros

    Work life balance. Since it's an IP boutique, everything is highly organized. Support staff are generally well trained. There are some very good people there, but they lack leadership so they only know how to follow the other sheep.

    Cons

    The original members of the firm are very good. The current management is self-serving, sleazy, and lacks vision. Desperately trying to join the big boys club without clue as to how to do it. Their "culture" sounds great on paper, but beware - they care more about appearance than substance.

    Advice to Management

    Step down.

    Pros

    For a law firm, good work life balance. Original founders are awesome, some really nice people work at this firm.

    Cons

    A small firm that wants to become a big firm but does not know how. They provide little to none of the training, resources or mentoring a big firm offers but expect big firm results.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people, look closely at your management staff, some are true dullards lacking vision, creating a negative work environment.
