"Good Compensation, but Fails to Notice Your Potential "   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Treat support staff better so that there is more consistency in this area. Give people more opportunities to expand their roles, and make sure these people are selected based on merit. Help IT do their jobs better.

Pros: Pretty good pay and benefits. Stable client base. Doesn't suffer as much from typical big-firm problems, to the extent you might think. Looks good on a resume.

Cons: Too much emphasis on inter-office politics. Use of technology could be better. Lots of turnover in the support staff; support staff seems kind of poorly treated in general, actually. Advancement can be difficult.

"A Great Business Law Firm"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

Advice to law firm management: This firm should consider doing the construction and other maintenance during off hours of work so employees can do their work in peace and renovations can still be done.

Pros: This firm had a very positive and friendly atmosphere that always made me feel welcome when I came in each day. The office is pretty casual but still professional at the same time, and management treats their employees like family.

Cons: The only issue with this firm is that it's in an older building and repairs are constantly being done which puts areas out of order. This isn't a big deal, but can be a bit annoying at times, especially when the noise interferes with your work.

"Good Pay and Location"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

Advice to law firm management: You can build a career here if you are an attorney and receive reasonable pay without super human expectations and DC is a great Cosmopolitan city to start out or stay in.

Pros: Venable pays well and fairly from the beginning, plus they don't set unreasonable work and billing expectations for their employees. I liked living in Washington DC. So pay, work, and environment are all positives.

Cons: They seem to be lacking in keeping up with technology and could improve on increasing the effectiveness of their tech resources. Also, unfortunately, like so many other firms, I witnessed support staff such as secretaries and paralegals getting unfairly treated. The lawyers were well respected but others received ill treatment.
