"Florida Offices are great"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on Nov 08, 2021

Advice to law firm management: Yearly pay bumps need to be better, the starting salary needs to be bumped to 105k.

Pros: They have a great book business. Very laid back, but hard working. Great work from home policy. The bonus structure makes up for the mediocre insurance (single person). Billable hour requirement of 165. Work-life balance is pretty good for a firm.

"Not Worth the Daily Perks"   - Anonymous      Write an Anonymous Review

- Reviewed on Sep 09, 2017

Advice to law firm management: HR was an active hindrance to job performance; figure out why. Work on the firm's reputation in the greater legal community, as the best and brightest people will be concerned about working at a firm that might harm their future prospects.

Pros: The day to day working conditions are pretty good here. They have some nice in-office perks that make it pleasant, and it felt like you had some flexibility to determine what kind of assignments you wanted to specialize in, which might be particularly valuable for younger attorneys.

Cons: Your work-life balance here will probably not be particularly harmonious, and the pay does not really reflect the efforts they want from you and the expensive cost of living in the area. HR is exceptionally difficult to work with as well. I have also heard from other people at different firms that the firm has a reputation for lacking high ethical standards - this is really something that needs to be addressed, as I have heard multiple people say these sorts of things.

Everyone Loves LawCrossing

LawCrossing was probably the best legal board I have used. I liked the layout and it was user friendly. I tried to use another job board, but it was not user friendly and was kind of a pain, whereas LawCrossing was easy to use to find jobs. I really liked it. I would certainly recommend this site and service to my colleagues.
