"ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE EMPLOYER"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on December 20, 2017

Advice to law firm management: "Advice to management" is a hopeless task at Wong Fleming, but here goes... Realize your limitations. Focus exclusively on marketing and networking and stay away from your employees (who btw are human beings with insight and perspective and goals, not pawns to be abused). Hire a full time office manager or better yet empower the non-equity partners to run the firm. At minimum, hire a long-term management consultant to learn how to treat employees.

Pros: Associates get exposure to a fair variety of work servicing Fortune 500 clients, primarily in asset recovery, creditors' rights and commercial collections. Except for the name partners, people are pretty congenial. Pleasant atmosphere whenever the name partners are out of the office. Tech support is pretty fair.

Cons: Only way to survive at this firm is to totally avoid working with the name partners, who routinely mistreat and abuse literally everyone at the office. Combine the emotional abuse with below-market salaries and a non-existent partner track, and the result is extremely high turnover for associates, paralegals, and everyone else. Zero opportunities for associates to develop their own clients. Abysmal bonuses (and sometimes none at all). Name partners are extremely tight-fisted and authorize only the cheapest CLEs available, and otherwise are willing to invest no time or money in the professional development of associates.

"Diverse Atmosphere, but Mediocre Salaries"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on December 16, 2017

Advice to law firm management: New hires generally appreciate and benefit from different types of demographic and task-related diversity, but there comes a point where they inevitably start to feel negatively about being in a situation where they feel overworked and underpaid and there appears to be only a small possibility of this changing.

Pros: Lots of diversity in terms of people and casework. Decent amount of training, mentoring, and guidance, which is good for younger employees still looking to find their niche.

Cons: Pay is not great, relative to the high amount of hours you'll put in. Opportunities for advancement can be difficult to come across. Some people come off as passive aggressive and conniving.

"A great place to get your foot in the door"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on October 26, 2017

Advice to law firm management: I'd like to see this firm promoted and marketed better. I would like to see them accept more cases and be less restrictive in terms of what kind of cases they accept.

Pros: Everyone is very helpful and I learned how to conduct myself and I learned the in's and out's while working at this firm as an intern. The secretaries are top notch as well along with management.

Cons: Not enough hours to go around. I felt very limited because there's not much work to go around at this firm. It feels very slow paced which can be great for an intern but not so great if you are considering this place for the long term.

"Practice What You Preach"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on June 05, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Practice what you preach about this teamwork business. We're all here for the same reason; to make the firm great, and serve our clients to the best of our abilities.

Pros: Practice What You Preach

Cons: The billable hours are so daunting. I especially feel that way when I open my rather low paycheck. I've seen some of the upper management demean and bully my fellow coworkers. The partners love throwing around the phrase "teamwork", but then have no problem throwing associates and those beneath them under the bus to save their own skin.
