5.Current Employee, less than 1 yearAmazing firm to work for, especially being in IT. Very generous to employees and well respectedJan 8, 2023 - in Pittsburgh, PARecommendPros- Great Benefit packages to choose from - Very generous 401k contribution - Considerable amount of PTO for new employees - Awesome people to work with and for - Amazing recognition for the staff that help operations of the firm 'behind the scenes'Cons- Pay starting out in IT is average to industry (practically entry level myself though, do expect to grow with time) - a few 'troublesome' people that request IT support, but it is a very small few that can get under the skinAdvice to Management- Keep up the recognition of the staff's work and duties, it is really appreciated and noticed

Poor work-life balance. Managers were unkind, selfish, and unethical. No sense of belonging to the department. Take a pass on Reed Smith if you have the option.

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

Great Firm

Pay more in order to avoid turnover. Offer more training.

The lawyers are very intelligent and friendly. There are many resources and good benefits.

The compensation is not very good. There is a lack of opportunity for upward mobility.

Restructure Your Life

Highly recommend you restructure your paralegal unit.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
