"Second-Rate Firm Masquerading as a Top-Tier Firm "   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on Aug 02, 2021

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

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.

Advice to law firm management: Think about giving raises more often, even though the starting salary is pretty good. Bring on some more support staff and pay them well to prevent shortages and turn over in that department.

Pros: Benefits and pay are very competitive at this law firm. If you like to travel there is plenty of opportunity here because of all their international clientele, especially in the UK. The technology here is the forefront of the profession as well, and they are very community oriented supporting many programs.

Cons: The hours are long and the work is strenuous. It's a very high pressure place to work and a very competitive environment. If you're a team work type person this is not the place for you.

Advice to law firm management: I think management would serve the firm well if it worked on retaining its employees. There's quite a bit of uncertainty and disorientation from all the people coming and going.

Pros: With hundreds of top class lawyers and humongous clients, the firm is one of the greatest places to really excel in the large scale law world.

Cons: The turnover can get a bit jarring. It seems like every other day there's a bunch of associates who have left and a bunch who have just joined.

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!
