Review:

"One of the better paying firms - but you earn more than you are paid!"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 29, 2017

Improve pay structure to reward staff based on annual reviews (instead of 2% or 3% firm wide pay increases regardless of performance ratings). Also, promote qualified candidates from within instead of offering higher paying advancement opportunities to new hires. Finally, do something to discourage the petty staff reporting to HR for non-infractions (e.g., sit both the reporter/reported down to “clear the air” regarding any underlying interoffice issues to end the nonconsequential reporting).

Pros : Although one of the better paying firms with great benefits and multiple on-site Tech CLEs for staff (BARW University), there is a very distinct "us" v. "them" class structure between the attorneys/staff (even having a designated "Attorneys Only" on-site lunchroom). There is a distinct 1% v. 99% subculture with the attorneys treating staff much like the cleaning crew (and even with extremely favorable annual reviews, the pay raises barely kept up with COLA increases). Although I got along extremely well with my attorneys (they treated me more like a Jr. Associate rather than a "minion"), my co-workers were backbiting gossip hounds who would run to HR if I wore white shoes after Labor Day! I think there must have been a secret reward for snitching since I'd get a call from HR at least once a month when a crabby co-worker was having a bad day. Pros: Top of the line office equipment/legal software, on-site CLEs for all software licensed by the firm, and higher-end salary based on the market average.
Cons : Class structure and cliquish work-environment that breeds staff-on-staff resentment. And no matter how fast you work, you will still be days behind your attorneys (but if you're lucky like I was, your assigned attorneys work well with one another).

Everyone Loves LawCrossing

LawCrossing has the most listings of any job board I have used. It's actually a great site. The website had a lot of detail. It’s nice that you don't have to go through a recruiter if you don't want to. You can actually contact the law firm directly for the positions listed. LawCrossing had a ton of great features.
