Rework the benefit plans.

This firm is very laid back and relaxing. The environment amongst coworkers is very positive and uplifting to making me want to be at my best at every moment. Even more so since there is very good opportunities to advance within the firm.

The healthcare plan is terrible; most of the benefits are subpar.

Former Employee Mr. San Francisco

Management should focus on giving associates a better pay rate and if possible, relocate the office to any other location.

I loved that this company gave great flexible hours. I also enjoyed working with the other employees.

The pay was not very good and the bonus that I received was laughable at best. The office was also located downtown so there was much noise and traffic in the morning time.

Diversity Write a review

Our firm's commitment to diversity is nearly a half-century old. Our first woman partner was Margie Pitts Hames, hired in 1962. She was soon joined by Dorothy Toth Beasley, who later served as a judge on the Georgia Court of Appeals. In 1973, Ms. Hames and Judge Beasley made legal history by being the first women attorneys to argue both sides of a case in the U.S. Supreme Court. The case was Doe v. Bolton, a companion case to Roe v. Wade. Although both were at different firms at the time, Ike Fisher, one of our founders, referred to the historic argument as one of the proudest moments of his career.

Our goal today is to continue that tradition of inclusion, and expand upon it. We seek to recruit, hire, develop, retain and promote the best attorneys and staff at all levels - regardless of race, color, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, disability, background or viewpoint. This commitment starts with the firm's Chairman, Roger Quillen, and extends throughout our work environment.

Diversity and inclusiveness are an essential part of our firm. While this spirit of openness is engrained in our spirits, we have also formalized our efforts. Fisher & Phillips' Diversity Committee, chaired by partner Todd Fredrickson, is committed to developing and expanding the firm's talent, relying on our unshakeable belief that being inclusive and incorporating diversity in its broadest sense strengthens our ability to serve our clients by making us more capable of addressing and providing critical insights regarding today's workplace. Our Diversity Committee, composed of partners, of counsel, and associates from across the country, represents a broad spectrum of the differences in ethnicity, race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, backgrounds, and viewpoints. The Diversity Committee's goals can be summarized in five key initiatives:

Ongoing firmwide education on diversity and inclusiveness issues and programs;

Lateral recruitment, including a lateral hiring strategy designed to build a diverse workforce across all experience levels of the firm;

Retention and advancement, including the development of a firmwide mentoring and training program that ensures support and development for all associates;

Community outreach that will increase our support of and connection with diverse businesses, professional organizations and underprivileged communities; and

Identification and recruitment of top-tier candidates graduating from law school who will enrich our firm.

Summer associate program

Fisher & Phillips seeks law students who have completed their second year of law school. Each year, we hire a small class of summer clerks for our Atlanta office. We do not have a summer program for any of our other offices.

Our program is designed to give our summer clerks a flavor of both the breadth and depth of the practice of labor and employment law. We expose our clerks to all aspects of our practice for a realistic view of what it is like to practice as a first year associate at our firm. Our clerks have opportunities to attend events such as client meetings, hearings, depositions, and client seminars.
