They tolerate bad employees

Recurring legal secretary opening in the health law department is due to a paralegal that gets all the secretaries fired. Her attitude and unprofessionalism is tolerated by her Partner and HR.

Productive work environment, yet good managemnet has declined.
Legal Secretary (Current Employee) –  Denver, CO 80203June 3, 2012
People at Baker are very serious about their work product. There are many nice people at Baker. My co-workers have always been pleasant and will start work as soon as they arrive; I've learned different software; and the firm holds a few special events for the staff members during the year.

During the last two years, however, the administrative culture has changed, and staff is being watched like a hawk. One secretary who had worked there for only four months had been called into HR four times by her attorney. One of the reasons was that the secretary had not emptied the attorney's recyling bin, which had not been mentioned previously as a duty. HR took this criticism very seriously and the secretary was reprimanded.
Pros
people work very hard
Cons
rules too restrictive; devaluation of employees
