Former Employee - Reviewed on July 01, 2020

Train your managers! Have a better work atmosphere, and people won't continue to leave. Give staff bonuses to make them feel appreciated. Care about your staff-- who really support the attorneys and get the job done!

Pros : Affordable insurance.
Cons : (New York/Westchester offices) Management only cares about the attorneys. Management does not have any managerial skills! Very undisciplined atmosphere. Overworked and underpaid. No bonus for assistants. Extremely heavy workload. A few nice people to work with, but mostly nasty and high school'ish. Very stringent rules from Philadelphia headquarters. Staff is a merry go round of people.
