Company Culture

Sidley's policy is having a very diverse, culturally supportive environment.

Support from management

My supervisors were very supportive.

Teamwork

In the department I worked in teamwork was definitely a plus.

Freedom to work independently

Generally, my supervisors encouraged independent work habits.

Internal Communication

Sidley's communication practices are pretty standard.

Gender Equality

Sidley Austin allowed family priorities for both genders equally.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Sidley seemed to value seasoned workers highly.

Career Development

Though my raises were good, my job duties didn't change much over time. I think that is an issue I'm largely responsible for.

Overall compensation for your work

My reviews were good and as a result I was told I had greater percentage increases in salary.

Office / Work Environment

Sidley had a pretty friendly but purposeful environment.

Environmental Friendliness

I was treated well by most people.

Work-Life Balance

In my experience, the work-life balance was above average, but not all had the same experience.

Company Image

Sidley is one of the highest rated law firms internationally.

Job Security

I worked at Sidley for a long time until I retired.

Handicapped Accessibility

Sidley had some employees with disabilities, but in my experience there wasn't many.

Workplace Safety

In my department there were some safety violations, but no major incidences.

Challenging Work

My supervisors provided a sufficient amount of challenges as a whole.

Inclusive / Diverse

Sidley's population covered people of most all cultures.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I'm not sure what could have been done differently in my employment at Sidley, except I didn't agree on some policy issues about cultural differences. Christians were not allowed to say Merry Christmas.

What I like about the company

My experience at Sidley was generally positive. Most people were friendly and my supervisors were supportive.

What I dislike about the company

I felt that my not being allowed to say Merry Christmas was discriminatory of my rights as a Christian. We're all adults. Employees should already know who wouldn't receive the message well. Generally I think that policy is unnecessary.
