Fragomen. Reviews

- Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Keep your head above water and you will be able to do well here. The law firm does their best to make sure you will succeed.

Pros: I've been working with Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen and Loewy, LLP for over 2 years now. The staff is absolutely wonderful and very helpful. They treat me like family.

Cons: There is a lot of cases and work to be done every single day. The workload is tough but it is still manageable.

Advice to law firm management: Give IT more resources to help them update the office technology so everyone can be on the same page more often and so everyone can be properly trained and up to date. Reduce redundancy and inefficiency and put the saved money toward more personnel so people don't feel so overextended.

Pros: The firm's various benefits and perks are pretty motivating and make the job more pleasant. It's a large company, so you can find a niche or function that works for you, somewhere.

Cons: Work hours are long and some types of work can feel really repetitive. There are also issues with technology, communication, and training is not uncommon. The personnel are not always allocated efficiently.
