Advice to law firm management: People need room to grow. There would be less turnover and higher quality of work if the lower level employees knew their work might put them in a better position in the future.
Pros: Lots of highly talented people with lots to teach. There's always been a wealth of resources and knowledge from all levels of the staff that have helped me with my work and my career skills in general.
Cons: Very difficult, if not impossible to move up. It seems like all open positions are filled externally. Few young people in the firm and the few that are there aren't there for long.
I came back to LawCrossing to search through the listings in my new job search because I had been able to get my last 2 jobs through using the site. I love the search capacity and filters. This is a very valuable service.
