"Thumbs down to national management"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on Sep 28, 2018

Advice to law firm management: Consider the culture and the management structure. The culture has suffered as the firm has grown. Also local management should have more power to decide office-wide hires to help keep the culture stable. National management often sees only numbers and does not see the long-term picture.

Pros: There are some very good attorneys who are also very good people in individual offices. Getting in with the right group in the office you are in is key. You will have to interview the attorneys as much as be interviewed by them if you are considering a position here.

Cons: Firm has grown really quickly and may be growing for growth's sake, without regard to the impact on culture. Some of the national management lack understanding of the local markets, and lack people skills.

Partners to Avoid and Why: This is a national firm. There is no way to list partners who should be avoided. Just know that some are micro managers and some cannot delegate work. It depends on the office you are in.

Favorite Things About this Firm: The people I worked with were generally very nice. Many are really smart as well. National firms do pay better in many markets than local or regional firms.

"Not Enough Help To Go Around"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on Dec 18, 2017

Advice to law firm management: I would like to see this firm hire more seasoned attorney's to help out around the office. I think that this firm could afford to hire some new attorneys that are new to the field as well.

Pros: I was new to the field when I started working here and found the pay to be somewhat better than average which is a plus. I also found my secretary to be very helpful as well.

Cons: The office was always busy and there was never enough hand's to go around to help those that needed help. Being new to the field this ended up hurting me in the long run.

"This Firm WasNot Very Conducive to Me Learning the Ropes"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on Oct 26, 2017

Advice to law firm management: I would like to see management step up to the plate and hire some new attorneys to help ease everyone's work load. I also believe that they should see that the gossiping and politics are kept to a bare minimum.

Pros: There is excellent pay and plenty of overpay opportunities. They will work around your schedule. The secretaries are top notch, and the work environment is very spacious. I also like how candid everyone is as well since it makes you feel as ease.

Cons: I felt as though everyone was way too busy at all times to help me when I needed it. Everyone is tied down to their work and when they do have free time they tend to just gossip and make small talk with each other instead of helping interns such as myself.

"Great People But More Promotion"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on Jul 01, 2017

Advice to law firm management: They definitely need to increase the number of people being promoted within. I think this would help both the new associates, as well as encourage more experienced associates to stay with the firm.

Pros: The staff and other lawyers have been great to work with. There is a definite team mentality, even when dealing with other divisions. I always felt welcomed and could discuss matters with others.

Cons: There has been little room for advancement. I've known many experienced associates who have not been able to move up the ladder. Mid-level associates are getting work that would be more appropriate for new associates.
