No transparent organizational structure
Support from management
All they tell you is billables. Otherwise, you are guessing.
If only there was an "I" in "team"
Freedom to work independently
Lots of autonomy, merely because there is not much work going around
Some, but mostly gossip
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.
Seriously? It's a law firm
Lots of layoffs and departures.
The building is, but that's city code
Again, city code
It's more challenging to find a flow of steady work
Inclusive / Diverse
