Review:

"Life at B&T"

Former Employee - Reviewed on March 19, 2019

I believe it is obvious where there should be improvement. I don't believe that I could think of anything else. It is a good place to work and there is really no place perfect.

Pros : I worked at B&T in the Chicago office for a long time. It was a very good place to work. I enjoyed the small firm feeling even though we were growing leaps and bounds. It was exciting because there was always something new going on. I enjoyed the socials that the firm sponsored. There were not too many attorneys that you could not get along with and the Office Manager was very understanding. The firm was open to ideas from the support staff to a good degree.
Cons : The attorneys that you could not get along with, which were very few. However, they made life pretty miserable. Sometimes you felt that there was no one on your side and that the attorney was always correct, without listening to a reason why something was done. These are things that happen at a lot of firms so it is nothing new nor do you expect it to be any other way. Just learn to deal with it and hope you can find someone to listen to your side.
