Advice to law firm management: Management needs to step in at times and make decisions when employees can't. This will help move meetings and overall work along faster.
Pros: The people I work with at this company are some of the best I have ever worked with. Everyone is so friendly and polite and get along with one another tremendously. Meetings go great with everyone coming up with ideas and supporting everyone's ideas.
Cons: The problem with everyone being so nice at this firm is that it's difficult to make decisions sometimes. People are good at making suggestions, but coming up with a final solution can take a lot of time and effort.
Advice to law firm management: You can work on diverse cases and make your portfolio strong. My advice to the firm is that you have to work really hard to be recognized at this place. But once you achieve that recognition the firm provides you opportunity to move up faster. My advice to other attorneys is to work hard and make it count.
Pros: Great people and great support from across the board to help you progress with your career. There is a good training and a diverse industry learning experience. They do believe in work/life balance but at times it is hectic too. The workplace culture is competitive as well as professional.
Cons: Challenging work environment. Can be very fast paced with many down times. Success is primarily driven by billable hours and track record of accomplishments. Hardest part is utilization of targets and achieving deadlines. One more thing I would say that this firm does not have the best compensation in the industry.
