Frost Brown Todd LLC. Reviews

- Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Advice to law firm management: The law office should consider working on the area of environment. The law office has done their job of getting attorneys and staff to work collectively and has caused a division. There needs to be higher compensation in wage for the staff and attorneys.

Pros: The salary at the law office firm is consistent with what other places are offering. The law firm also offers PTO days and paid holidays.

Cons: The office does not have a positive environment in terms of the way there is a division. There is a separation of attorneys and staff. It is difficult to receive a much better promotion in terms of wages.

Advice to law firm management: Hire more individuals, so the work load evens out and works out for everyone better. That would make things better overall.

Pros: Working at this firm has been really great and working around everyone here is a joy. I like being around and with everyone at this firm.

Cons: It can get quite stressful sometimes and that leads you to dwelling into work too much and not being able to take care of other important things.
