Fragomen. Reviews

- Reviewed on February 18, 2021

Advice to law firm management: Take care of your productive employees and get rid of associates and partners who do not perform.

Pros: Big law firm

Cons: Partners only concerned with profits. Extremely low employee morale. Work product managed by paralegals and client service managers. Attorney involvement with cases minimal. Recognition based on personal likes and dislikes of senior associates and partners.

Partners to Avoid and Why: Many .. the entire firm partnership is based on individual profits. It starts at the top... it is a horrible culture at Fragomen.

Favorite Things About this Firm: Some good clients and co-workers
