"Inconsistent Firm Culture"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on Dec 18, 2017

Advice to law firm management: The firm should seek to develop a more consistent culture between branches so that people are equally willing to transfer elsewhere - otherwise, they will not be motivated to work at the ones that are somewhat lacking in reputation. Make sure brand new physical office spaces have technology that's just as new, and that rising leaders are properly trained - make sure fundamentals are in place before big changes are made, basically.

Pros: Nice, pleasant physical space with good office perks. Benefits are decent. Some job tracks offer quite a bit of room for growth or to demonstrate leadership or autonomy.

Cons: Firm culture can really depend on your branch location - not necessarily a pro or a con, it just implies inconsistency. Lots of turnover in certain areas. Some technology seemed out of date. Training sometimes felt inadequate.

"Full Service Law Firm"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on Oct 26, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Make an effort to remember the people at lower levels contribute to your success just as much as the rainmakers at the top. Foster a more team based system.

Pros: The firm takes care of its employees and the attorneys are the best of the best. You can expect to learn a lot if you make the effort to reach out to them. The firm has a lot of work, resources and a heavy caseload.

Cons: There is a very heavily weighted preference for those at the top. The workload can be very overbearing sometimes and require long hours. It can be hard to build a client base.

"A firm where you will definitely put in the hours, but you might also do well for yourself financially"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on Jul 01, 2017

Advice to law firm management: As with all firms, this opportunity is what you make of it. Some attorneys will succeed brilliantly in this environment. Others may not be able to live up to the high standards.

Pros: The firm allows associates to earn as much as they want. This is a good practice if you can put in the hours all day, every day. Many associates appreciate this opportunity to grow and earn as they see fit and manage their own schedules.

Cons: Some of this firm's clients are of the unsavory persuasion. This may put you off if you are in the position to defend them in court. You will need to make sure your professionalism game is "on point."

I was incredibly happy with the site. I thought it was very easy to use; had significantly more postings than any other site (or combination of sites); and provided a lot of useful information. (the number, and caliber, of job postings). Exactly what I was looking for – I have 5 years’ experience and was looking for a lateral move or an in-house position, and that’s exactly what I found!
