Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP. Reviews

- Reviewed on October 26, 2017

Advice to law firm management: I think the scheduling could be updated and there could be more hires to allow the work to be spread out.

Pros: I had a great time working with these guys and figuring out cases and the best way to tackle them. The work is very interesting.

Cons: I would say that the scheduling could use some work. Often I had to stay extra hours to be able to finish my work.

Advice to law firm management: It would be a good idea to start going one by one through the largest problems and the sources of the problems to deal with them.

Pros: If you are looking for short term work this is a perfect place as you won't have to feel guilty when you leave.

Cons: Everything that can go wrong will go wrong here and people fight every single day without stop it seems for any reason that they can think of.
