Review:

"Do Independent Research on this Firm"

Former Employee - Reviewed on March 10, 2018

Management has its work cut out for it, but there are a few good places to start. Foster more direct and honest communication between partners, associates, and staff. Carefully examine the policy behind the laws the firm seeks to enforce. Scrutinize legal documents with utmost attention, whether part of the firm's substantive work or administrative processes. Encourage independent thinking and questions. Self-evaluate formal and informal remarks made inside and outside the firm and assess the extent to which these remarks reflect the firm's stated mission and values. Compare treatment of employees to firm's mission. Develop a more integrated outlook on the firm's mission, human resources, and public messaging. In short: Think bigger and more creatively.

Pros : You can get some some help from the firm with obtaining/maintaining your professional certifications/licenses. Also, food and coffee are readily available. Experts with whom the firm works are knowledgeable, engaged, and friendly. Associates, junior partners, and staff are--for the most part--congenial.
Cons : Poor management, including deficient communication skills, questionable interpretations of relevant law and review of key documents, sloppiness in addressing human resource issues, ineptitude in controlling emotions, unwillingness to request feedback and take cues from outside the management circle (or even from within the management circle), HIGHLY questionable presentation of legal objectives inside and outside the firm, and shortsightedness in perceiving the larger policy implications of the firm's legal approach. In addition, some staff seem to deal with interpersonal issues in a passive-aggressive manner, not unlike children this reviewer knew in middle school.

Current or former employee? : Former Employee
