Review:

"Terrible Law Firm"

Former Employee - Reviewed on January 21, 2020

You can start by telling your partners to not talk bad about employees on social media. Its very unprofessional, puts off clients and speaks to the stupidity of said partner who probably doesnt realize their settings arent hidden and can be viewed by everyone. It's made worse when the clapping seal caucus of other partners from other offices chime in on the post as well. You know your clients check your social media right? You know other firms do to? You realize advertising to the world how incompetent you think your co-workers are is a direct dis on the firm's hiring? No associate or support staff deserve to be ridiculed in this manner and it certainly doesnt lead to better work performance.

Pros : They will hire just about anyone so that's a plus. The support staff is very friendly and helpful.
Cons : The partners are awful at just about every single office. Miserable, angry and vindictive. They treat the associates and support staff horribly. From screaming at you in the office to belittling you on social media, this firm has a serious maturity issue among its partners.
Approve of the CEO[?] : Yes
Recommend this employer to a friend? : Yes
Business outlook for the next 6 months? : up
Current or former employee? : Former Employee
Last Year at Employer : 2019
