Grow a heart.
Get a clue- it's 2022. An office where the majority of partners are Christian White Males is not an office showing any progress.
Very few female partners. No diversity or equity, especially for women who want to have children. The women "in charge" are cliquish and small-minded, and do not support women who just want to come to work and get the hell out of the office at the end of the day.
Marie Carlisle- she's every woman's worst enemy- she has way too much time on her hands and has a habit of blacklisting associates who aren't in the office as much as she is, or who have families, as she is single and childless and only has her dogs to go home to. I heard horror stories of the way she has treated not only associates but summer associates as well.
Some of the women are really incredible, but most are sipping the BH Kool-aid and pretend they don't see the rampant sexism in the office.
Stop laying favoritism and teach everything the same and don’t have five different ways to accomplish a task.
Management of Conflicts
Leaving for the day and the firm
you already got rid of her, that's good. I would follow up with all the creditors she represented in the case and see how they're doing.
if you want to make money they'll have the resources to get your ambulance chasing cases. however, i don't know if this will help your soul
Ashley McDow got nothing for her creditors in the HashFast bankruptcy case while making a boatload on us. No good. Never followed up with us.
Ashley McDow because she did not represent her creditors who trusted her with having stolen money returned to them. instead got us wrapped up in one legal process after another siphoning all the money away from creditors
my favorite thing is getting fucked in the ass having this firm represent me in the Hashfast bankruptcy case.
For the most part, you are doing a good job. And, of course, you can't make everyone happy all the time.
Baker is probably the best run firm I've ever worked for. They care about their employees and it shows.
There are jerks at every firm, but life in a law firm is a pressure cooker, and attorneys are known to be hard to work for. The staff can also be petty and negative.
I can't think of any partners to avoid. They are all pretty nice. Everyone has their moment, but I haven't observed any true abusers.
Decent, responsible, aware, wants to do what's right, caring (for real), tries to listen, wants success for everyone, not greedy
Lookout for people that are at risk of burning out or people that looks like they are burning out and offer to help them out before they burnout.
Hard work is rewarded well here at this firm. The harder you work the more you will be rewarded with bonuses and extra benefits.
For some people the push for hard work can be extremely stressful for them and it can cause them to burn out.
This firm needs to do a better job at staying on top of employees and work gossip. This does nothing but set people back and is unprofessional in the long run.
When I first started with this firm I went through a long training process that really helped me feel more secure in my position. I rarely had any questions and if I did management was always there to help me get through.
This firm felt a bit like high school at times. Staff would gossip constantly and management just didn't seem to care. When it came to the workplace being friendly and professional, this firm just simply fell flat.
I think that leadership should make things more clear to those who want to move up within the firm. The waters are a bit muddy as they stand right now.
Leadership at this firm really tries to foster a work environment that people enjoy. The work/life balance here is the best of any firm I've been with, and I've been with a few. The salary and benefits are also pretty good.
There doesn't seem to be a lot of upward mobility here. I haven't seen anyone promoted since I've been here, and there isn't a clear path one can follow if they desire to climb the ladder
