Review:

"No place to thrive"

Current Employee Washington in Two years City, - Reviewed on April 26, 2018

Let the group go or they will ruin your reputation, their billing practices, attitude towards the firm leaders and management, the insubordination and disloyal conversation will prove to ruin the DC office and future prospects.

Pros : Location is near museums, metro, monuments, theatres, fine restaurants, court buildings, parade route, building is clean and modern, security personnel are very friendly and helpful
Cons : The IP Attorneys and paralegal are lazy, procrastinating and irresponsible with no integrity whatsoever. The stand around all day, well into the afternoon before they begin to look at any work product, gossip and talk about whomever is not in the room at the moment and have nothing positive or inspiring to say about anything.
Current or former employee? : Current Employee
Job type : Part time
Length of Employment : 3-4 years
