Advice to law firm management: I'd like to see us expand in the right direction and hire some new attorney's and other professionals. I feel as though having more hands to help during work hours will help ease everyone's work load.
Pros: I really enjoy the fact that this firm has kept up to date in regards to the latest advancements in the field. I also really enjoy working with everyone and the pay is excellent.
Cons: I have seen other workers take on more than they could handle on more occasions than I'd like to admit. There have been times in which I had to work well after usual office hours myself.
Advice to law firm management: If you are into business and corporate culture than you need to work at this firm. If you are more law driven and prefer a traditional law firm structure than I would not suggest working for this company.
Pros: I started working for this firm several years ago. Was very proud to work for such an old and large firm. There are many national and international clients. It is full of very smart people. It also has a strong large corporate like culture. It also pays very well and provides many great benefits. The work is also very challenging and very large scale.
Cons: The problem I had with this company is that it is set up like a fortune 500 company and not a law firm. The culture is very corporate and those with that kind of previous experience or background do much better than those like me with purely legal background. If you are well versed in corporate jargon and structure you will love this place if not then it is not a very good place to work.
