Company Culture

Overall, they are better than most places in that a dialogue on matters concerning their employees is typically accepted.

Teamwork

Severely lacking in this area...as with any service where billable hours are monitored, it can get very dog eat dog amongst colleagues. This is typical for law firms.

Work-Life Balance

This one is difficult. Yes you can, however, the true nature of at least a few partners is to get the most out of its staff, work life balance, be damned. This is not the norm, so for the most part, they deserve a pass.

Company Image

Yes, despite a couple of less than great communicators in the partnership, they are a diverse and positive group. Very cohesive if you fit in to the law firm world.

Job Security

Not always as strong as you think. Small sized offices like these, you must beware of gossip.

Challenging Work

When busy, you can find a lot of good work here as it is a diverse practice.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I don't think law firms require change. They just require top-notch partners running the ship.

What I like about the company

I like the location a lot. This area has close proximity to North Beach and excellent bars and restaurants. I like the friendly atmosphere with those attorneys who you come accross the halls every day.

What I dislike about the company

I don't appreciate partners who do not communicate their needs and a couple loudmouthed attorneys, who don't hear their tone or do they actually care what they sound like? Likely not!

Support from management

Mid management has absolutely no support from upper management, staff in the development is the most unsupported and unsupported I have ever worked with

Teamwork

The Client Accounting team is one of the best I have worked with (most have left now).

Gender Equality

It's a law firm, they have too

Attitude towards older colleagues

No bias

Office / Work Environment

So much Angst

Suggestions for improvement

  • Stop treating staff as fungible employees

What I like about the company

When I first started working at DWT I noticed that everyone had a positive and helpful attitude toward each other then realized that it was for real. I do miss working with such a great group of people.
