Butzel Long. Reviews

- Reviewed on December 16, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Management at this firm needs to be more consistent. If management cannot run a law firm then it will fail and people will leave.

Pros: I had a great experience working at Butzel Long. The training was done very well and I really felt I had a strong grasp on the position. The pay is also pretty good compared to other firms in the area. I also really liked the hours 9-5.

Cons: My only issue with this firm is management. People would often come and go and it would feel like a bit of a revolving door all the time. Management could have been a lot better about dealing with issues.

Advice to law firm management: Provide a better work/life balance. Work on raising staff morale.

Pros: The benefits are great. Lawyers are incredibly smart and caring. The environment is professional.

Cons: Morale is down after the economic lows. Some of the staff have poor attitudes. There is not a good balance between work and life.

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.
