Review:

"Good Attorneys but Poor Management"

Current Employee - Reviewed on July 21, 2017

The management should continue to invest in internal resources and new employees. For attorneys I can say that hours can be very long and expectations can be sky-high.

Pros : The Attorneys at Bullivant Houser Bailey PC are some of the best in the legal industry - exceptionally bright, fair minded and of high integrity and ethics. Work content provides opportunities to be creative and analytical. Ability to work with different departments and offices.
Cons : Typical corporate law firm hierarchy and detachment. Management did not address work-related problems I had with a new hire for about 2 months. Associates and paralegals are grossly overworked and very little skill development. Management is not open to new ideas and very slow to develop new processes.
