1.0Former Employee, more than 3 yearsToxic EnvironmentPractice Assistant in Fort Lauderdale, FLRecommendProsYou get a paycheck and benefitsConsThe Ft. Lauderdale office is nfriendly, unhelpful, no bonuses, and nothing special. Ofc mgr is unwilling to get anyone situated properly. She spends more time gossiping with co-workers. You have to ask permission to get a stapler. Nobody smiles or feels comfortable just saying hello. Paralegals aren't needed there like they think, (too many pitching against each other as it is) which makes PA position nothing but boring and redundant. Certain attorneys are non-communicative and miserable. High turnover in litigation area. Reviews aren't conducted privately as everyone can hear through the walls. Your moral will suffer here. Run!Advice to ManagementStop your constant gossiping on phone, and with certain click employees. Be friendly. Be willing to not just dump someone new at their desk and not be seen again.

We are committed to supporting and sustaining a culture of inclusion that reflects both the ever-increasing diversity of our clients and the interconnectedness of the world in the 21st century. We recognize that only by fostering such a workplace culture will the firm continue to attract the best talent and support the development of long-term client relationships.

We are committed to ensuring that diversity is a top priority in the hiring, retention, and advancement of our attorneys and other professionals and in the elevation of diverse attorneys to leadership positions within the firm. Our core values of inclusiveness, cultural awareness, and mutual respect among us all ensures an environment that is welcoming, collegial and open to new ideas and change.

All of our professionals are encouraged to reach their goals and potential regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, disability, faith, or marital or parental status.

Our commitment to diversity starts at the top, and our Diversity and Inclusion Committee is guided by our CEO Jack Barbour's dedication to this effort. With our CEO's support, the Diversity & Inclusion Committee facilitates dialogue with firm management and diverse attorneys on inclusion initiatives and goals to ensure diversity remains a top priority in the hiring, advancement and retention of talented lawyers and professionals.

Diversity: Our Reality

We are proud to say that women and diverse attorneys serve on our Board of Directors, our Executive Committee and our Advisory Committee, which is tasked with setting compensation and overseeing promotions. Women at Buchanan head offices, lead sections and serve in other key leadership positions in the firm.

Diversity is an important component of our firm's Strategic Plan and Client Service Standards. Much of our success moving forward depends on the strong commitment and cooperation of the firm's leadership, working together with the Diversity & Inclusion Committee, the Legal Recruiting Department and the Professional Development Department. The firm has opened up communication on the role of diversity at the firm and held training on implicit bias for all lawyers. Diversity has been an agenda item for section retreats, shareholder meetings, and discussions by Committees pertaining to lateral recruiting, promotions and business planning. Attorneys and government relations professionals are encouraged to contact members of those departments for assistance and with ideas for advancing our goals.

The firm's Diversity & Inclusion Committee is tasked with promoting and nurturing diversity within the firm. With eleven attorney members at all levels of service and two administrative directors, the Committee addresses issues with respect to the recruitment, retention and promotion of diverse and women attorneys. Internal initiatives of the Committee include hosting affinity group meetings and retreats, overseeing a formal sponsorship program for diverse counsel, supporting alternative work options and seeking out training opportunities for women and diverse attorneys. In conjunction with the firm's Director of Professional Development & Diversity, the Diversity & Inclusion Committee and the firm's Associates Committee offer formal mentoring to our associates, including those who are diverse.

The chair of the Diversity & Inclusion Committee and the head of the Women's Business Development Committee along with the Director of Professional Development & Diversity meet with women regularly to provide advice and training to further their integration, work satisfaction and career goals. The firm's larger offices have a women's liaison who coordinates social, educational and professional programs for women at a local level.

Outside of the firm, Buchanan has proudly partnered with various professional, educational and community groups which are dedicated to diversity, such as the University of Pittsburgh's Center for Race and Social Problems, the Philadelphia Diversity Law Group, the Allegheny County Bar Association and the National Association for Women Lawyers. Buchanan is a member in good standing of the Law Firm Affiliate Network of the Minority Corporate Counsel Association and has signed onto the Association's core diversity principles.
