Reed Smith LLP Reviews


"Knowledgeable in Law but that is pretty much it"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on February 26, 2019

Advice to law firm management: For once in your life, show a little empathy and a willingness to work with others. Such greed and bitchiness is extremely unattractive

Pros: The firm definitely gives their focus on clients cases. They also work around the clock which is nice sometimes, until they bother you at 2:20AM

Cons: Very technologically challenged, needy, and lack of caring for others. Its really pathetic actually, and has caused me to switch to another firm, who is more charismatic to my wishes.

Partners to Avoid and Why: I have no feelings towards partners whatsoever, except for their inability to import basic, good qualities onto those that work for them.

Favorite Things About this Firm: I have none. I have none. I have none. I have none. I have none. I have none. I have none. I have none. I have none. I have none. I have none. I have none. I have none. I have none.

"Cooperative Law Firm"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on December 16, 2017

Advice to law firm management: The firm should work on having events in which more staff would be open to participating. Retreats, potlucks, or meet and greets would seem like a great way to be able to meet more of the staff which has not met other staff and employees in the office.

Pros: A law firm in which staff and employees work alongside together and have created a pleasant environment. The firm offers benefits. The staff is respectful.

Cons: Part of the firm is not on the same page. Some of the employees do not open themselves to working in the same pleasant environment. There needs to be more staff hired.

"Restructure Your Life "   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on July 01, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Highly recommend you restructure your paralegal unit.

Pros: My coworkers have always been my favorite part of working at this firm. They make for a really great vibe throughout the office. We have really wonderful benefits and 401K packages.

Cons: There is very poor structure here. The paralegal system needs to be readjusted. Even for a small firm the pay was substantially less than market value. This is especially frustrating when this firm offers no opportunity for growth or advancement. When I left this firm, I started at more than double my old salary.

"Great place to work for"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on June 12, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Believe in your abilities and focus on your work. You can achieve great things in this firm if you work hard and show full dedication.

Pros: I have worked as an attorney at this place for more than seven years. At this place people are legitimately smart and always interested in helping you to advance your career. My supervisor is very friendly and always willing to solve issues I face. I must say that the environment is very work friendly at this place. The work-life balance is also satisfactory.

Cons: The firm is very work focused in its outlook and does not relax its requirements for anyone. I also feel that some IT persons are difficult to work with in the firm.
