Zimmer Kunz PLLC Reviews

Advice to law firm management: I think upper management should figure out a way to make things more welcoming for everyone and make things better suited to someone starting out.

Pros: This is a great firm to work for with tons of great people and lots to learn while you are there. I feel like I have learned a lot in my short time here.

Cons: I feel like you have to prove yourself at first and that can make you quite stressed out, while you get used to the atmosphere.

Advice to law firm management: It is insurance defense, so it is expected to be a grind. This industry will never be a family-friendly practice because of the high volume of work that is required. But it does not have to feel like a sweat shop, which is the tone set by management and measurably changed with the changing of the guard from the founding partners to the current generation. It wouldn't take much to improve, just start treating people like something more than a dollar sign and make them feel appreciated. Make policies known, and transparent, and do not pull a bait and switch on requirements.

Pros: It is a good opportunity to learn a lot from some very experienced partners, and there are people that are genuinely good to work with and for.

Cons: Firm policies and practices are not effectively communicated, and you have to figure them out for yourself. Billable hours are unattainable. Not the stated billable requirement, which would be tough but manageable, but rather the "off the books" requirement that seems to change by the month. Essentially, nothing is ever good enough. There is an extremely inconsistent work load, which further makes it almost impossible to meet the billable requirement. Using your vacation time is very difficult, as the only "acceptable" reasons to take time off are viewed as your own wedding, birth of your child, or the death of an immediate family member, though you will be expected to be available for assignments even then. Overall, it is a very difficult place to work.
