Advice to law firm management: Give managers training to equip them to be managers. It seems like none of the managers here have ever gone throuh training
Pros: Good pay. I've gotten two raises in a year.
Good amount of time off, but don't get an opportunity to use it.
Cons: Benefits are very expensive if you have a family.
Management does not care about the lower level employees
Very stressful to work here
Rules aren't for all employees
Employees that have been here a long time get special privileges.
Partners to Avoid and Why: I really don't want to list names. That seems kind of rude to me. There are some partners that are rude and don't even say hi when you walk by though.
Favorite Things About this Firm: There is a free pop machine in the Indy office.
Business casual dress code is new and that is a nice policy.
Advice to law firm management: Maybe management can do something about the long hours. I'm not expecting much, but one can always hope. It's really not that bad as it stands now, but it could always be better.
Pros: I'm very happy with both the benefits and the pay here. We have good health insurance, good dental insurance, and there are some nice perks, as well.
Cons: The hours here can sometimes cause strain at home, but I think that's probably true of every law firm. Either way, be prepared for long nights and weekends.
