Advice to law firm management: Treat your employees better. Increase the raises.

Pros: The firm is friendly and treats its associates well. Coworkers become like family. It provides a fun culture to its employees.

Cons: Things can be cliquish among staff and employees. Raises could be better.

Advice to law firm management: Hire a non-attorney CEO to run the firm. Lawyers should be lawyering, not running the administrative decisions of a firm. And choose someone from the outside.

Pros: Some really great folks work here but you have to find them. Kansas City office started out great but the only the bitter have remained.

Cons: Two large offices defected in January due to the firm's profitability. All C-levels of note have voluntarily left the firm in the past 4-5 months. New CIO (Dianna Thimjon) hired and those managers that did not leave on their own have been slowly walked out and the IT support in other offices have been dismissed in the last couple of weeks. The Firm's management promised there would be no substantive changes in IT with the new CIO but everyone began to leave after a key Director decided to leave during new CIO's 2nd week. She has since cleaned house and very few of the original team remains. She rules by fear and if you don't have a backbone, you'll do just fine. If you do have a backbone, go upstairs to Littler -- it's where all of Sedgwick's Finance and IT talent have moved to.

Summer associate program


For law students, a summer at Sedgwick means a season of practical experience because our summer associates are given real work on active cases - the same type of assignments first-year attorneys receive. Summer associates assist in the development of case strategy, review and write memos and briefs, and help prepare for and attend depositions and court appearances, while working with partners and associates as possible. Each assigning attorney provides feedback directly to the summer associate following the completion of each project. We also provide a formal review in the middle of the summer and at the end of the program.
