Suggestions for improvement

  • Work life balance!! 9-5 is not how most people can function.

What I like about the company

I feel that if I stay under the "radar"I have independence and can work hard without too much nonsense from office management. I work hard but it may not be 9-5

Company Culture

No transparent organizational structure

Support from management

All they tell you is billables. Otherwise, you are guessing.

Teamwork

If only there was an "I" in "team"

Freedom to work independently

Lots of autonomy, merely because there is not much work going around

Internal Communication

Some, but mostly gossip

Career Development

None

Overall compensation for your work

Less than "peer firms"

Office / Work Environment

Need an anyidepressant. All of the big whigs are leaving. The only fresh faces are washed out attorneys and prior summer associates.

Environmental Friendliness

Seriously? It's a law firm

Work-Life Balance

It's biglaw

Company Image

Nope

Job Security

Lots of layoffs and departures.

Handicapped Accessibility

The building is, but that's city code

Workplace Safety

Again, city code

Challenging Work

It's more challenging to find a flow of steady work

Inclusive / Diverse

Sure
