Blackwell Burke PA Reviews

- Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Advice to law firm management: If HR can rein in the people that don't seem to do as much work as others, this place would be even better. Even with the issue, the place is still has a great atmosphere.

Pros: All my time here has been great and have learn a lot even when I thought I knew everything. Great focus from everyone here.

Cons: The resource department seems to slack a bit since I believe they think everyone is always at 100 percent, which sometimes isn't the case.

- Reviewed on October 26, 2017

Advice to law firm management: This firm should consider offering optional overtime, that way the employees who want the extra hours can have them and those who don't can see friends and family.

Pros: I've worked at this firm for 5 years now and have never considered leaving. Management is friendly and approachable but also firm when it comes to their standards. Bad employees are let go and management does very well at keep this firm running like a well-oiled machine.

Cons: The only downside to this firm is the hours. Most weeks I work well over 40 hours which is good for my paycheck, but I rarely get to see friends or family sometimes. I wish the work-life balance was better.
