Advice to law firm management: Treat your staff better, please, and give us more opportunities to grow.

Pros: Little Opportunity, Little Reason to Stay

Cons: Management is not very concerned with satisfying their staff. They cap ourpositions in order to prevent upward mobility. This leads to a high turnover rate and I honestlydon't blame them for a second. I wouldn't want stay here for a long time with the favoritism that goes around. Ireally get the impression that they do not care about our well-being.
