Cantor Colburn LLP Reviews

"Difficult place to work is putting it mildly."   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on Sep 04, 2020

Advice to law firm management: Rethink your business model. No wonder you had to lay people off. Overhaul your pathetic, abusive "team leads" who make it so difficult they quit from their abuse in a matter of weeks not months.

Pros: Nothing.

Cons: I couldn't say it better than a 2017 former employee review: "chronic disorganization & overwork; abusive management practices - favoritism, laziness behind 'closed doors', scapegoating, 'voluntary' over-time with no pay, blatant unfairness, short-sighted problem-solving, no opportunity to advance. workplace culture is anxiety-riddled legal factory with a tendency to justified paranoia, back-biting & self-aggrandizement among deified members of staff." Nothing has changed since 2017. Also poor compensation

Partners to Avoid and Why: Karl Barr - Extremely abusive, short tempered especially if you are a new employee. Everyone, including management, knows and prefers to keep it that way. Keith Murphy - Rants. Makes admins do attorney legal work instead of attorneys. HIs abusive "team lead" is a living hell. Everyone, including management, knows and prefers to keep it that way.

"Intellectual Law Firm"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on Aug 04, 2017

Advice to law firm management: The firm needs to find a way to maintain the relaxed environment of the workplace, while also trying to make sure that professionalism is still the most important goal.

Pros: The firm focuses on intellectual property cases and other such fields. I love working in such a field of law. It was always an interesting work place when it came to the dynamics of our cases and how we associated with clients and fellow lawyers. The pay was great and so were the resources that were afforded to us.

Cons: The issues I had with the firm was the lack of professionalism sometimes when it came to the culture of the work place. There was too much of a care free attitude sometimes when it came to how we handled some clients and cases.

I was incredibly happy with the site. I thought it was very easy to use; had significantly more postings than any other site (or combination of sites); and provided a lot of useful information. (the number, and caliber, of job postings). Exactly what I was looking for – I have 5 years’ experience and was looking for a lateral move or an in-house position, and that’s exactly what I found!
