Akerman LLP. Reviews

- Reviewed on October 26, 2017

Advice to law firm management: My advice to the firm is to keep doing exactly what you are doing. I have met several former employees who have branched into exciting careers from the experience and time spent at Akerman.

Pros: This is a fantastic starter firm. The partners are always willing to listen and help you as you begin your career. I loved my time here.

Cons: It's a small firm, so there's not significant room for advancement. Other than that, the worst thing about working here was leaving.

- Reviewed on July 01, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Would be a much better place if I felt like I could actually move on in my career without leaving and just having my time here pad my resume for the next firm more open to newcomers.

Pros: High profile firm with many reputable partners and clients to learn from. My skills and knowledge in various areas have really developed during my time here.

Cons: Almost impossible to advance. Seems like the firm only brings in new talent to do the grunt work and only advances those people already with a name who can bill high amounts.

Current or former employee?: Current Employee
