Advice to law firm management:
More opportunities need to be created to make it possible for associates to move up within the firm and that would lead to more motivation among the personnel.

I really liked the associates I worked with when I first got to the firm. Everybody was really professional. I was immediately helped with any issues I had. And the pay was great as well. I also was surprised by the amount of knowledge that some of the lawyers at the firm had when it came to a variety of fields.

The only issue I had was with the inability to progress in terms of position at the firm. I think that the firm seems to be comfortable with the tiers that certain associates have. Superiors tend to keep to themselves as well.
