Banner & Witcoff, Ltd Reviews

- Reviewed on August 04, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Be more lenient with the staff, as we are people and don't need to be treated like children to get work done. We are adults. If we spill a drink we will clean it. A little non work related conversation can go a long way for morale and our sanity.

Pros: The staff provides free bagels every Wednesday and a free lunch once a month. Pay is good and benefits are fair. All the offices work very well together.

Cons: The job is stressful and micro managed by management. We can't have food or drink at our desks and receive constant emails about how to dress. Conversations that don't pertain to work are not allowed. This job also has a high turnover rate.

The founding vision of Barack Ferrazzano in 1984 was to create a new model that departed from the standard "mega-firm" approaches and, instead, focused on delivering efficient, team-oriented services of the highest quality. Our founding partners - two highly respected law professors at Northwestern University and two former members of a prominent Chicago firm - were soon joined by like-minded colleagues also seeking an alternative to the large law firm environment.
