Great Perks, Lots of Micromanaging on May 19, 2024 - Current Employee Mr. in San Francisco City,

Current Employee

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.

Associate Review on May 19, 2024 - Former Employee Mr. in San Francisco City,

Full time 2018 Former Employee

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.
