Bracewell LLP Reviews

- Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Advice to law firm management: I would like to see more room for advancement and I'd like to see promotions given out more often as well. On top of that, I'd like to see management keep a closer eye in regards to front desk staff to attorney dealings that take place during the day to keep everything running smoothly.

Pros: I found the pay to be excellent and the benefits were outstanding as well. The work was always interesting and never dull as well.

Cons: There are a few professionals here that treat the front desk staff like they are just anyone off the street. A lot of my fellow employees at the time also complained at the lack of promotions which I had to agree with them in regards to.

Current or former employee?: Former Employee

Advice to law firm management: Let mid-level associates do some of the supervising. Too much time passes without taking on more responsibility, which leads to mid-level associates feeling marginalized or not trusted.

Pros: A good work environment where experienced staff are happy to help new associates. You're given lots of new responsibility and are able to expand your horizons while still getting adequate assistance from senior partners.

Cons: Sometimes you feel like you're being babysat or tested. Lots of years must be put in at lower level work before moving up to work unsupervised.
