Pros: I worked here for a few years and became close with a few coworkers. We got along great and the firm had us working together a lot which was nice. This firm really emphasized the importance of teamwork and I found this method to work very well.
Cons: The atmosphere can feel a bit like high school sometimes. The staff gossip to one another and it can feel uneasy at times. Certain clients were unbearable to work with but our firm rarely turned down a client.
Advice to law firm management: Management needs to be more serious when it comes to their company. Having fun is important, but not all the time.
Pros: This firm is quite fun when first starting out. They have casual Fridays and staff parties quite frequently and always try to ensure the work environment is upbeat and fun.
Cons: Unfortunately this firm lacks leadership and seriousness. The manager doesn't take enough matters seriously and it's hard to feel professional at this firm. Management needs to do better at getting down to work and setting aside time for fun.
