Cons: This firm has a backstabbing work culture and an extremely toxic work environment. HR and the director abuse staff and the management committee does not care. Everyone is expendable and there is a revolving door. They even have a staff bully that they use to harass people and get them fired, she has been written up several times and still has a job because she is best friends with HR. Nepotism runs rampant here. Attorneys yell at staff. I will never hire them again because they billed me to death and my attorney was never available when I had questions. Don’t bother applying here or hiring here.
Advice to law firm management: For anyone looking to get into a stable firm with prospects of growth, promotion and being mentored by those who have been doing this for decades, this is a great place to work, if you can handle the stress and the requirements of such a competitive field.
Pros: A hugely varied range of areas to practice, offices all over Florida if the climate and scenery interests you. Very experienced lawyers that can help you gain experience and navigate your specific area of practice. A stable and well-run firm.
Cons: Intense competition, huge companies as clients that demand results so there's a lot of pressure to both please them and get things right. The areas of law this firm is involved with are very complex and technical, so be prepared to be up to your neck in books at all times. If Florida isn't for you, then this firm will not have much to offer.
