McCarter & English, LLP. Reviews

- Reviewed on October 31, 2020

Pros: While the going is good they are goody two shoes.

Cons: The management went into the crisis wishing and hoping it was a two month deal. They did not cut expenses and ultimately decided to take it all out on select attorneys. Financially they are probably hurting worse than others.

Current or former employee?: Current Employee

Job type: Full time

- Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Changing staff amongst the Senior attorneys would allow for more growth in knowledge and make up for the lack of advancement available.

Pros: This firm stands out for the fact that the Senior attorney like to give the new hires solid cases to work on. This shows a level of trust that is rare today.

Cons: Advancing in this firm is rare. The Senior associates like to make never-ending promises to keep their staff working on their cases.

Current or former employee?: Former Employee

Everyone Loves LawCrossing

LawCrossing has the most listings of any job board I have used. It's actually a great site. The website had a lot of detail. It’s nice that you don't have to go through a recruiter if you don't want to. You can actually contact the law firm directly for the positions listed. LawCrossing had a ton of great features.
