Review:

"Bureacratic Firm with Poor CYA Corporate Culture and Partners that only want to Intimidate (including physical threats) not Manage. Avoid!! "

Former Employee - Reviewed on April 25, 2018

Update your systems and technology. The firm is too stuffy - even in law firm standards. Your associates and employees are to be respected. There are plenty of other (and better) firms out there.

Pros : Decent salary and benefits. There is health insurance but it is too expensive and has poor coverage. There is a bonus based on bill but is often unattainable. There really is not too much else.
Cons : Poor corporate culture and partners that seemed to not only engender backstabbing and throwing under the bus but actively encouraged it. This same partner in the litigation department threatened physical violence!! The firm needs to get with the times - seems stuck in the 1990s. Disorganized and bureaucratic - CYA and then gives you the run around - "pass the buck ethos."
Approve of the CEO[?] : Yes
Recommend this employer to a friend? : Yes
Business outlook for the next 6 months? : up
Current or former employee? : Former Employee
Last Year at Employer : 2018
