BCG Attorney Search speaks with attorneys about law firms every day. Here is what attorneys are saying:

BatesCarey is a law firm that is highly regarded by its attorneys and staff. The firm has a professional atmosphere and offers flexible work schedules, great clients, and a great deal of expertise expected of its attorneys. It has a small to medium size firm feel with decent sized offices and located in close proximity to mass transit. The firm also offers profit sharing and medical and dental insurance.

The reviews indicate that the firm's attorneys are pleasant to work for and the work environment is generally collaborative and supportive. Unfortunately, there are some drawbacks to working at BatesCarey. Junior attorneys may not always get the support they need, and the assistant salaries are capped and not competitive with other area firms. Additionally, policies are followed very rigidly and the IT support could be stronger. There have also been some reports of a toxic work environment with terrible morale, beginning with the partners through the lower ranks of staff, and expensive medical insurance unless one chooses the HMO plan.

Overall, BatesCarey is a great place to work with many perks and opportunities. While there are a few drawbacks, the positive reviews far outweigh the negative and many attorneys and staff members enjoy their time working at the firm. The firm provides a great deal of expertise and a professional atmosphere for its attorneys and staff, and provides a great deal of opportunity for its junior attorneys. With flexible work schedules, great clients, and profit sharing, the firm offers a lot of benefits for its employees.
