Advice to law firm management: Raise the pay and benefits. Treat your workers better.

Pros: The work was interesting at times. I enjoyed most of the people I worked with. There is room for advancement here. There are a good variety of practice areas.

Cons: The compensation is not very good for the amount of work you do here. I didn't get along with everyone here. There are some cliques and office politics.

Advice to law firm management: Work closer with your staff to find compromise.

Pros: Listening is the Key

Cons: I was never worried about losing my job or being replaced, however, there is very little opportunity to grow or advance in this firm. The management isn't too flexible when it came to working around my schedule with three young children.

Everyone Loves LawCrossing

LawCrossing is fantastic! When I am looking for a job, it is the first place I come to. The service is very good and I enjoyed the emails. LawCrossing has more jobs and it is more tailored. Other sites gave a lot of irrelevant results. Your site may have a great algorithm, but it felt like an actual person choosing jobs they felt would be good based on my search. I will always recommend this site!
