Advice to law firm management: This firm needs to consider paying their employees more. Otherwise they will leave to another place of business and make more money elsewhere.
Pros: Management at this firm is really great. They help train you when you start and are always there to answer any questions you may have. Their office door is always open and they always set aside time to speak with employees and value what we have to say.
Cons: The only problem with this firm is the pay. When starting out it is fine but they rarely give out any raises, even to employees who have worked here for years. It makes it tough to work harder when the pay is being stuck the same.
Advice to law firm management: If the leadership team changed the culture this firm would be a really great place to work. They should start holding people accountable for their actions and treat everyone equally.
Pros: Associates and support staff are paid very well here, and there is a fantastic training program in place for those who want to develop themselves. It's also nice to be able to work from home if I don't feel like coming into the office. Associates are given a lot of leeway in how they complete their work.
Cons: The culture here really needs work. It seems like the leadership team doesn't always treat associates or support staff very well, and this has caused a visible rift between leadership and everyone else. Accountability is also an issue.
