Review:

"ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE EMPLOYER"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 20, 2017

"Advice to management" is a hopeless task at Wong Fleming, but here goes... Realize your limitations. Focus exclusively on marketing and networking and stay away from your employees (who btw are human beings with insight and perspective and goals, not pawns to be abused). Hire a full time office manager or better yet empower the non-equity partners to run the firm. At minimum, hire a long-term management consultant to learn how to treat employees.

Pros : Associates get exposure to a fair variety of work servicing Fortune 500 clients, primarily in asset recovery, creditors' rights and commercial collections. Except for the name partners, people are pretty congenial. Pleasant atmosphere whenever the name partners are out of the office. Tech support is pretty fair.
Cons : Only way to survive at this firm is to totally avoid working with the name partners, who routinely mistreat and abuse literally everyone at the office. Combine the emotional abuse with below-market salaries and a non-existent partner track, and the result is extremely high turnover for associates, paralegals, and everyone else. Zero opportunities for associates to develop their own clients. Abysmal bonuses (and sometimes none at all). Name partners are extremely tight-fisted and authorize only the cheapest CLEs available, and otherwise are willing to invest no time or money in the professional development of associates.
