Seyfarth Shaw LLP Reviews

"To be honest, it's not a great place to work. I've since gone to a better firm, so I figure I'll go ahead and write up a review as a former employee."   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

Advice to law firm management: What I would recommend to anyone who may be reading this that is working for the law firm. Do whatever you can to change the pay scale and salary increase reviews to be one in which merit is considered rather than an employee's popularity.

Pros: Let's start with the good stuff. Everyone worked well as a group. We communicated throughout the firm when we had issues. We shared resources and I truly felt that we all scared about helping each other. We all wanted to see each other shine.

Cons: However, there was a lot of favoritism which led me to leave the firm. Advancements and salary increases weren't due to qualification, experience, or even how well we did in the past year. People were given salary increases greater than others just due to being a favorite of the head management. It was all politics over there. I wasn't as charismatic and personable as others, yet I was able to complete my job with flying colors. But because I wasn't as popular as others - I didn't receive great advancements in my pay.

Advice to law firm management: I think more positions should be made for those that want to stick around and continue to work, yet progress their careers even further.

Pros: While working at this firm, I had a lot of experiences that helped me grow as a person and in my career overall.

Cons: I left as I did not feel as if there were more available positions within the firm and made me seek employment elsewhere.

"Many Good Lawyers But Some Issues"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

Advice to law firm management: Encourage more teamwork, and deal with associates who are not professional. I think that would help the entire firm, and increase productivity for everyone in the firm.

Pros: Overall I have dealt with many great lawyers. My practice group is solid and everyone is polite, friendly, and helpful. I have had many opportunities to work on many labor cases. Many of the paralegals are great at what they do.

Cons: I have heard from colleagues that there are some bad associates. Not bad in ability but behavior. I have seen the effects of a hostile work environment and it has hurt my practice group before. Bad people skills should not harm other practice groups but they have.
