Advice to law firm management: Really need to do something about the declining firm culture

Pros: Associates here get more hands-on experience than associates at some of the mega big-law firms. Most cases are leanly-staffed which allows for these types of experiences.

Cons: Take away the above selling points which are really not that unique and Brown Rudnick has little to offer. Associates fluctuate between having too much work or not enough work. The firm struggled post-COVID and it has ravaged morale and the firm culture. BR prides itself as a "sink or swim" type place which doesn't help morale, especially when the reality is that BR lacks the resources to ensure attorneys grow with the firm. It may be a fine place to start for a few years but I would look elsewhere for a long-term landing spot.

Partners to Avoid and Why: Varies by department

Favorite Things About this Firm: Visiting the different offices pre-COVID

Current or former employee?: Current Employee

Job type: Full time

Advice to law firm management: The firm needs to strike a balance with the workload present here. At the time it was difficult to balance work and outside of work activities because of the demanding atmosphere that is present at this firm.

Pros: The experience to be had here is rewarding. I've had the pleasure of working with a great team here that pushes you to through and through in this field. All the while, the firm is accommodating with spacious work offices, competitive salaries, and great communication. I've met many attorneys here whose guidance has resonated throughout my career.

Cons: Work hours are long and draining. It is difficult to find a balance between work and life because of this. The work that passes in and out of this firm demanding.

Current or former employee?: Former Employee

Diversity


Our commitment to diversity informs every aspect of firm life, from recruiting and hiring, to training and mentoring, to firm management and leadership. We believe our clients and lawyers alike will benefit from a workforce that fully reflects the rich variety of race, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, and ethnicity in our communities.

We realize that success in this mission means more than interviewing and hiring a diverse population. We also focus diligently on retaining and maintaining this workforce. We've established tangible structures to support diversity advancement and encourage candid exchanges of views. From "Dishing Up Diversity" luncheons, to themed displays in our lobbies, to diversity "office hours," we work to create conversation and camaraderie.

Achieving diversity goals requires regular and active attention. But we believe Brown Rudnick, with its culture of openness and acceptance, is well placed to be a leader in law firm diversity initiatives and achievement. We welcome your ideas and participation in this effort.

Our efforts include:

Participation in the Boston Lawyer's Group and Lawyer's Collaborative for Diversity which promotes diversity hiring and retention

Participation in minority events and job fairs

Participation in the Boston Bar Association's (BBA) amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court in Fisher v. University of Texas, et.al., supporting the University of Texas at Austin's consideration of race when making undergraduate admissions decisions

A Diversity Committee with lawyers and staff from multiple offices and practice groups

Consistently receive top rating of 100 percent on the Corporate Equality Index, an annual survey administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation

Consistent organizational and financial support for attorneys involved in diversity organizations

Collecting, reporting and publishing workforce diversity data for our London office as part of a national initiative of the Solicitors Regulation Authority of England & Wales
