"Seyfarth Shaw & Trump"

Former Employee - Reviewed on July 30, 2020

Hire qualified staff. HR should not be a former secretary with power issues. Educate personnel on labor laws and substance abuse. REMOVE the attorneys that spend 3 hrs on personal calls, 3 hrs on "lunch", and 3 hrs wandering the halls.

Pros : There is usually "something" good everywhere, not here. I did make a couple of friends.
Cons : The attorneys. I watched an Associate blame his secretary because he failed to timely serve discovery. He told HR that his secretary "threw papers" at him and "refused to file the discovery". That is not a typo or a reflection of my intelligence but rather, his. As this is EXACTLY what he told HR and her immediate supervisors. I never met a secretary or an attorney that did not know you don't file discovery, interrogatories, RFP, etc. until this. To add insult, the secretary did not throw paper, however, the attorney did and he did this when she brought to his attention that they did not need to "file" the discovery.
