Jackson Kelly PLLC Reviews

- Reviewed on September 02, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Listen to your staff about new approaches to things. Hire more women as long as they qualify and stop the discrimination.

Pros: There is wonderful job security, with a chance to learn multiple areas of law. The compensation is very well given the area of the country this is in.

Cons: It has massive amounts of stress levels and tends to hire more men than women. The communication is very lacking in ideas to improve the firm.
