Current Employee Current Employee Mr. San Francisco

Advice to law firm management:
I hope that the leadership team sees fit to reevaluate staffing levels moving forward. The firm would run a lot more efficiently with more support staff.

Pros:
The associates here are all very hardworking and intelligent, and the partners are fairly accessible and down to earth. This is a pretty good place to work, for the most part.

Cons:
There doesn't seem to be enough support staff available when crunch time rolls around. This can make things more difficult than they need to be.

Current Employee Current Employee Mr. San Francisco

Advice to law firm management:
I would like to see more events occur throughout the year, such as Christmas parties, to help bring together our front desk staff with the attorney's.

Pros:
The work here is very interesting and our team is very accommodating and professional in all regard's. I have also found the flexible hours to be very beneficial as well.

Cons:
There can be some friction between the front desk staff and the attorney's but this tends to be somewhat commonplace at most high end firms from my personal experience.
