"A Small Law Firm"

Current Employee - Reviewed on October 23, 2017

Upper management would greatly improve the work atmosphere with a course on anger management or something similar. Perhaps the unused wing of the offices could be rented to provide for an increased benefits package for current employees.

Pros : The small size of the firm leads to a wonderfully relaxed working environment. Employees are given leeway to decorate their work space in unique ways. Management is generous with off the cuff benefits like catered lunches.
Cons : The upper management can be short-tempered. Though it doesn't often result in long-term repercussions like firings or demotions, it can be stressful to handle. The benefits are less than you'd get from a larger firm.
Current or former employee? : Current Employee
