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

Ball Janik is a law firm based in Portland, Oregon, that has been in business for many years. The firm has been viewed as an employer of choice in the past, offering long-term stable employment and a collegial work environment. Reviews of the firm indicate that the management team is great, providing excellent training opportunities and a manageable case load. The office atmosphere is also described as nice, with plenty of benefits and organized, if outdated, systems management.

Unfortunately, the firm is no longer seen as an employer of choice due to reports of unprofessional conduct by management, no longer stable long term employment opportunities, and decisions that have been made without any notice that have affected employees' livelihoods. Additionally, some have reported that there is a lot of "gaslighting" by upper management, that it is every person for themselves, and that if an employee has a conflict with a particular person, they are left without recourse.

There are also reports that there is not much upward mobility and that questionable decisions have been made in terms of cutting hours. Reviews of the main office in Portland are mostly positive, with the local offices receiving less favorable reviews.

Overall, Ball Janik appears to have been a great employer in the past, providing a good work environment with plenty of benefits and training opportunities. However, reviews in recent years suggest that the firm has become less of an employer of choice, with employees facing unprofessional conduct, questionable decisions, and a lack of recourse if they have a conflict with someone in management.
