Troutman Pepper Hamilton Sanders LLP Reviews

- Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Advice to law firm management: The law office should reconsider offering wage increases in smaller increments in a shorter period of time to the hard working staff and employees. There should be a continuation of appreciation for the hard working employees at the law firm.

Pros: The law firm does a great job of offering several incentives to employees. The firm offers bonuses to its employees. The partners of the law firm recognize the hard work perform by the employees in their department.

Cons: The law firm does not offer a wage increase in a short period of time. The amount of work hours requires focus. The healthcare plan offered is at a high cost.

- Reviewed on October 26, 2017

Advice to law firm management: I would like to see work reviews take place more often and I would like to see more room for growth especially to those that work well after hours on their cases.

Pros: The pay at this firm is top notch and there is plenty of vacation time to go around. Everyone is in a great mood most of the time and the work environment is very lively.

Cons: Moving up the ladder can take quite a bit of time at this firm and the amount of growth that one can expect to achieve in any given amount of time is very limited.
