Gordon Thomas Honeywell LLP Reviews

- Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Advice to law firm management: I don't think I would change anything. This firm cares about its employees and I loved the experience I got from working here.

Pros: The benefits package here is really outstanding. It covered everything from medical to a great 401k plan. The firm dealt with a variety of areas of law and had a number of attorneys on staff. There was so much knowledge in one place.

Cons: Everyone was friendly enough, but there are a lot of people on staff and so many cases being worked on. Starting out there could be overwhelming and intimidating.
