NOT RECOMMENDED Read More About the BCG Attorney Search Law Firm Ranking System

Our negative experience with this firm has led us to actively warn others against them.
Not Recommended law firms may have a history of complaints and negative reviews, possibly making them risky workplaces for associates and other employees. These firms may exhibit toxic work environments marked by a lack of coordination between departments and management, possible political strife, and different problematic dynamics. The management at Not Recommended firms may be unresponsive to concerns about human resources or political issues, leading to high employee dissatisfaction and, in some cases, negative experience. As a result, these firms may be considered undesirable choices for those seeking stable and fulfilling employment in the legal industry. Some law firms ranked Not Recommended or below are done so based on private information possessed by BCG Attorney Search. This information makes us nervous about recommending this firm to others until these issues are corrected.
We have been in this business for 25+ years, have spoken with countless attorneys from this firm, and believe that certain firms (most firms) err on the side of being more positive than negative places to work. There are also firms where the reports from attorneys are more negative than positive and have been for years. This does not mean every attorney has a negative experience at Not Recommended firms, every department is problematical, or every office is. Over time, cultural, management, and other issues result in an overall negative rating. We are careful about making these ratings only when confidential; ongoing adverse reports are confirmed by our experience with the firm and speaking with many attorneys there that seem consistently more negative than positive.

Cons: 1.0 Current EmployeeDownhill really fastAnonymous Employee Pros- Some staff are really nice people and great to work with.- HR is super nice and responsive.- The location is great.Cons- Treatment of staff from attorneys.- Negative environment.- No room to grow for staff/ extremely stagnant environment.- Talent is not valued or compensated fairly, thus creating those that actually do a great job to leave.- You are asked to do things and other people's jobs without an increase in pay.- The culture is severely lacking, and it's a depressing environment to work in every day.- Insecurity and unstable environment. So many layoffs have been happening in the past few months.- The COO is arrogant, demeaning and fake. He is a brown-noser to all of the Partners and Managing Partner, but doesn't uphold any moral values around staff.- The attorneys are extremely disconnected from staff, and how bad the culture is.- Many AAs sleep on the job, refuse to take orders and don't know basic computer skills, but yet are protected by their attorneys.- Outdated work environment, and not up to today's standards (no flex schedule or work from home).Advice to ManagementPlease listen to what staff are saying. Stop having the COO direct staff meetings and throw others under the bus. You need a MAJOR culture change and shift in a positive direction. Value those other than the ""money makers."" Be transparent with staff about layoffs and the future of the firm.
