Neal, Gerber & Eisenberg LLP. Reviews


"Associate Review"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on February 02, 2018

Advice to law firm management: make the bonus system more transparent, set up better training programs if you continue to want to take in new attorneys, give the associates more say-so in how the firm is run

Pros: Big deal fortune 500 clients, experienced attorneys, friendly co workers, nice office, great location in downtown Chicago, early substantive experience because of the smaller size

Cons: Very hard to get training as a younger attorney, partners can be very demanding, bonus system is black box and hard to determine why a bonus was or wasn't given, associates aren't given much input

Partners to Avoid and Why: No specific partners to avoid, as it depends very much on department. The "partnership" as a whole can be intimidating as an associate, as the firm is somewhat hierarhicial

Favorite Things About this Firm: The staff is all quite friendly, the experience is super for a firm of this size, and the work is often very interesting (entertainment clients). Social events are often quite fun as well.

- Reviewed on January 17, 2018

Advice to law firm management: Remove the black box from bonuses, have a better system for training greener associates, have more iterative check-ins beyond mid-year and bonus-review

Pros: Getting to work with Fortune 500 companies in a smaller firm, friendly fellow lawyers and staff, free coffee, breakfast every Wednesday

Cons: Associates have no knowledge of how bonuses and promotions work, no real sense of camaraderie with co-workers outside of work

Current or former employee?: Current Employee

"Great Perks, Lots of Micromanaging"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Step back and let your associates work. They've been hired to do a job and will do it well if you just let them.

Pros: It's nice that there is always plenty of free coffee and food available for associates. There are also some other perks that I find enjoyable.

Cons: The leadership here spends a lot of time micromanaging associates to the detriment of the firm. They can be overbearing and nitpicky at times, which is incredibly frustrating for me.
