"“Decent benefits and...”"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 15, 2017

Get it together and have a heart. Quit expecting people to worship the ground associate attorneys walk on. Also the free bagels on Thursdays are nice but come on.

Pros : Your coworkers who are working in the trenches with you are genuinely good people and look out for each other.
Cons : Associate attorneys lack managerial training and are only focused on the number of cases done per day regardless of how many cases (160+) you are working on and how burnt out you are becoming. Training is mediocre at best, obviously it makes it appear a great place to work. A word of guidance to anyone considering this position: if they’re hiring in December you will get thrown in at their most busy time of year and likely be let go after it.
