Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP Reviews

- Reviewed on July 21, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Improving upward mobility would be nice, or at least clarifying how associates can climb the ladder should they wish to.

Pros: The benefits offered by this firm are top notch, especially the health insurance. There are also quite a few perks thrown on top that make the overall compensation package very impressive.

Cons: Upward mobility here could be better. I am not sure about the statistics, but I haven't seen many people promoted in the time I've been with the firm.

I was incredibly happy with the site. I thought it was very easy to use; had significantly more postings than any other site (or combination of sites); and provided a lot of useful information. (the number, and caliber, of job postings). Exactly what I was looking for – I have 5 years’ experience and was looking for a lateral move or an in-house position, and that’s exactly what I found!
