Advice to law firm management: Help initiate channels to offer guidance or answer questions. Too often there is only silence from attorneys. When staff seeks out assistance, do not stand by silently or criticize.
Pros: Good people who hold onto the memory of working for a great firm
Cons: There is an unbelievable amount of motion with nothing ever accomplished. No oversight, no feedback, no response until the blame game begins. Staff is forced to wing it and make due but rather than show any appreciation for effort, there is an onslaught of criticism.
Those individuals put in place to advocate for staff are poor leaders, who are really "yes" men. Do not expect any loyalty or honesty from this firm.
