Review:

"Former Associate - left in 2020 - Avoid this place"

Former Employee - Reviewed on March 24, 2021

Stop breaking down associates’ self esteem. Cut the insane billable requirement. Cut the bullshit. Learn some humanity.

Pros : Most of the partners are nice people and there is some support for sharing your ideas.
Cons : Attorney salary starts at 44k and maxes out at 75-85k after 5 years. Require 225 billable hours monthly, which I think is maybe the highest billable requirement in North America. Extremely cheap/low salary, no raises really. They also don’t care about work quality - just bring in new clients for millionaire partners.
Approve of the CEO[?] : Yes

Business outlook for the next 6 months? : up
Current or former employee? : Former Employee
Last Year at Employer : 2020
