Review:

"Midsize woes"

Former Employee - Reviewed on March 02, 2021

Pros : Good perks, technology and benefits. Associate and paralegal experience will depend entirely on what practice group you are in. Generally a good firm to either be an equity partner or a young attorney looking for a resume builder. For everyone else, practice area will dictate satisfaction.
Cons : Insufficient support staff for associates, some partners are unsupportive on their matters, internal politics and firm structure impact collaboration, no pro bono credit, workload is heavy and compensation should be higher. Some practice groups have great leaders and others do not. People are generally stretched very thin and firm is slow to react to associate requests.
Approve of the CEO[?] : Yes

Business outlook for the next 6 months? : up
