Jennings, Strouss & Salmon Reviews

- Reviewed on July 21, 2017

Advice to law firm management: This opportunity represents a mixed bag, as you will find it hard to stay on task if you can't get enough rest. But there is also a lot to like about this opportunity.

Pros: You can make a lot of strong professional contacts here. There is also more than enough to learn about the law once you start working. You will make a pretty good salary, too.

Cons: Keep an eye out for burn out at this firm. Attorneys who can't manage sixty-plus hour weeks will not do well here. You have to have a completely clear schedule that is free of other commitments.

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!
