Watson Farley & Williams LLP Reviews

- Reviewed on December 16, 2017

Advice to law firm management: I would like to see the firm put a limit on the number of hours for the day. That or they should hire more attorneys to spread out the work more evenly.

Pros: I started out here as an intern and really enjoyed the fact that we were evaluated on our work once every three months. Plenty of my coworkers were receivingrecognition for their hard work. The pay was excellent as well!

Cons: The work can be quite tedious as times and a lot of the staff members are over worked. I really feel as though the work environment is too competitive.

Advice to law firm management: Offer more training, especially for management. Lose your egos.

Pros: I work on a very good team here. The facilities are excellent and the people are intellectual. Hours are flexible and benefits are good.

Cons: There is a pressure to deliver at this firm, given its reputation. It's hard to get a promotion here. Hours are long.
