Wicker Smith O'Hara McCoy & Ford P.A. Reviews

- Reviewed on December 16, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Create an atmosphere that encourages professionalism and development. Do something about persistent troublemakers who don't pull their own weight. If some changes are not made, many people will continue to simply use the firm as a stepping stone to another workplace that's more desirable and lucrative.

Pros: Hours are rather reasonable. Tech is usually up to date. Firm is generally organized and well-run in certain ways, and is a decent choice for a new graduate.

Cons: Pay tends to be fairly poor. Not many opportunities for promotion. Too much gossip and drama in certain departments. You get the impression that few people are invested in a long-term career at the law firm.

Advice to law firm management: This firm really needs to start to be more generous in terms of salary and overtime pay. I also believe that employees at this firm should have more room for growth with more frequent reviews.

Pros: Staff is very friendly as were my fellow coworkers. The work was always interesting and there was plenty of over time (even though it was underpaid). I also received plenty of help from my coworkers whenever I requested and was in need of it.

Cons: The pay is not competitive enough and there is a real lack of growth at this firm. I felt as though I was being underpaid and was not being paid enough especially for the amount of over time that I was putting in.
