Review:

"Good Place to Learn and Grow, but Occasionally Old-Fashioned"

Current Employee - Reviewed on August 18, 2017

Upgrade IT infrastructure so that everyone can maximize the output of their billable hours - I worked with a number of talented paralegals that had specific ideas on how to do this, but many felt like their voices were not being heard all the time.

Pros : The firm has a fairly intimate atmosphere and offers talented people long-term positions - I liked that it was not simply a ""revolving door"" of people. Management is fairly transparent - there are not excessive amounts of middle managers giving conflicting demands. Benefits are above average overall.
Cons : Some parts of the job that other places have partially automated or otherwise made more efficient are still being done manually here - a number of my paralegals have confirmed this. Spending excess time on relatively minor tasks can lead to lawyers and paralegals alike becoming unnecessarily overworked, which I have seen have rippling effects that make the entire organization somewhat inefficient.
