Advice to law firm management: Trust your team and speak up for us. Don't just say the right things, do them. Compensate your team better and don't blame others for your decision.

Pros: Great hours and PTO. Reputable firm. Made a lot of friends, unfortunately, the best ones have left.

Cons: Very low annual raise and bonus. Too much micromanagement and passive aggressiveness from the top. A lot of employee turnover.

Partners to Avoid and Why: No partners to avoid. Did not work with any of them. From what I hear, they are all nice.

Favorite Things About this Firm: The firm has a great reputation. There is a nice cafeteria in the building and the Christmas parties are fun.

"This firm is Fun"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

Advice to law firm management: Management needs to consider being more firm with their staff. Having too much leniency creates a hectic work environment where work doesn't get done.

Pros: I've been at this firm for almost a year now and my experience has been O.K. I like the people I work with and management is pretty fun and laid back. They throw a lot of parties for staff during the year and always try to create a fun environment.

Cons: Management can be a little too laid back sometimes. The office can feel a bit immature at times with gossip and other nonsense and management just doesn't seem to care.

"Pleasant Big Law Firm Experience"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on Jun 05, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Allow for more upward mobility and help associates feel less pressured.

Pros: Pleasant Big Law Firm Experience

Cons: As with any firm, you got to work long hours. Not all partners are the same, so your happiness at this firm can vary. Thankfully I was assisted by what I regarded as the better partners. Career advancement is a bit slow, but definitely doable with hard work.
