Former Employee - Reviewed on November 20, 2017

Figure out how to manage a law firm. High turnover is a sign of bad management. People are always coming and going because people are doomed to fail.

Pros : Some High-Level work, and some decent attorneys. good litigation experience. This is a litigation firm, not a full service firm as they say.
Cons : High Billables hours, no pay, and lots of games. High turnover. Desperate, angry people. Support staff is not qualified. I can't recommend the firm.
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 : 2016
Job type : Full time
