"This Firm was Truly Great"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

Management at this firm needs to be more consistent. If management cannot run a law firm then it will fail and people will leave.

Pros : I had a great experience working at Butzel Long. The training was done very well and I really felt I had a strong grasp on the position. The pay is also pretty good compared to other firms in the area. I also really liked the hours 9-5.
Cons : My only issue with this firm is management. People would often come and go and it would feel like a bit of a revolving door all the time. Management could have been a lot better about dealing with issues.
