Advice to law firm management:
Management needs a shakeup.

Pros:
Benefits, Benefits, Benefits.

Cons:
Like most firms I've worked in or read about, this firm offers very little time to have a social life. Management can create a very toxic environment at times. Very rare chances to move up. I busted my butt for more than a decade before ever even being considered for a promotion.
