Miller, Canfield, Paddock and Stone, P.L.C Reviews

- Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Keep working on employee retention. Implement a formal training program and things will go much smoother. Give the support staff a raise.

Pros: Some really great people work here. The salary is decent and the perks are above average. There is a real team atmosphere here.

Cons: Lack of transparency is a big issue. There is not a formal training program. You are just supposed to know everything from day one.

Current or former employee?: Current Employee

Advice to law firm management: I think that the leadership team should pay more attention to the culture of the firm and do what they can to stop toxic employees from polluting the atmosphere.

Pros: The leadership team really cares about developing their associates in order to build value at the firm. There is a comprehensive training and development program in place and upward mobility is high.

Cons: The pay could probably be improved and there are some toxic employees that make things bad for everyone else. The work environment really isn't that bad, however.
