Review:

"has potential"

Former Employee - Reviewed on May 18, 2018

The firm may benefit from a 360 degree evaluation (associates evaluating partners) as there are clearly disturbing trends that allows problematic partners to stay.

Pros : The firm has potential and has some good friendly people. It is a good firm in general and is aggressive in its growth. It likes to think long term and generally is fiscally conservative (which is good given the changing legal landscape).
Cons : The politicking at the firm is somewhat infamous to those who are at the firm - with some terrible partners not treating (let alone managing) associate well. There are also big discrepancies in pay depending on group. Morale can be low among associates.
Approve of the CEO[?] : Yes
Recommend this employer to a friend? : Yes
Business outlook for the next 6 months? : up
Current or former employee? : Former Employee
Last Year at Employer : 2017
Job type : Full time
