Review:

"The Best of the Big Law Firms: Smith, Anderson, Blount, Dorsett, Mitchell & Jernigan, LLP."

Current Employee - Reviewed on August 04, 2017

The firm needs better administration of expectations for both work/life balance, financial opportunities that open doors and administration and compensation decision making processes. The firm is great but it needs a bit more management overlook so it can be run on a more efficient level and generate more opportunity for others.

Pros : The firm offers a more supportable plan of action than most huge law offices - top of the line legitimate administrations for both value-based and litigation, however bring down billable rates than most larger law offices. It is an awesome occupation for a youthful lawyer - incredible experience and junior partner pay is the greatest in the area, but there are no rewards and exceptionally ostensible raises as the years pass. There are some extraordinary individuals, and the firm has liberal family leave and exceptionally flexible part-time opportunities on a case-by-case basis.
Cons : The Run of the mill enormous law office balance work/life and adjust, however excessively top overwhelming parts and a lot of organization overhead costs to have the opportunity for big law firm financial upside, even for partners. Administration and pay choices are made by votes of the employees, and since the firm is so top heavy, it has a major political feel, which causes wastefulness and unwieldy administration choices that are not generally in the greatest advantage of the firm as an organization.
