Company Culture

A Personal Floating Holiday for Support Staff would allow for observance of cultural service attendance without the use of a "personal day".

Support from management

Management listened to Staff, unfortunately did not comprehend the issues.

Teamwork

Some staff did not have the desire to learn all facets needed to "fill-in" to assist others.

Freedom to work independently

Professionals and Management disagreed on work distribution.

Gender Equality

Seemed the same for Support Staff.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Appeared that Support Staff (57-62) had their position(s) eliminated when yearly cuts were made.

Career Development

Support Staff should be evaluated individually for education, experience and continuing education and advanced accordingly.

Overall compensation for your work

Management and Professional Staff (Attorneys) should conference to discuss ANY issues arising with hours billed.

Office / Work Environment

Very Good Training program. Should have a "cheat-sheet" for all training sessions.

Work-Life Balance

Staff should have the option of working from home to accommodate personal situations, not just the Attorneys.

Company Image

IP is a specialty area in which Professionals (Attorneys) demeanor is a major factor.

Job Security

Management should realize that individuals have different work ethics, negative comments regarding workload should not lead to orchestration of position elimination by Management.

Handicapped Accessibility

Management and Non-Management (Attorneys and Support Staff) are at opposite ends on this.

Challenging Work

Yes, clients' comments received on several occasions.

Inclusive / Diverse

Mainly for Professionals, not Support Staff.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Mergers are difficult for all. Transitioning for Professionals (Attorneys) is even more difficult, be patient, and provide detailed assistance to avoid the Support Staff (LAA or LAS) being in the middle.

What I like about the company

Very Good Training programs (both Computer and Firm procedures). Trainers were pleasant, very knowledgeable.

What I dislike about the company

Flex hours and telecommuting for Support Staff not available. Reimbursement for all Seminars (related to job) for Support Staff.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Open communication between management and all levels of employees would keep good people from leaving, reduce hiring costs and low turnover is a plus in the eyes of the public.

What I like about the company

Trainers always available and very capable of answering and fixing problems. Remote-in was a life-saver for me several times.

What I dislike about the company

Lack of communication (sometimes non-existent) between professionals (attorneys) and staff.
