IP Contract Employee (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – December 9, 2015
I was hired as a contract employee doing new client intake for new IP attorney joining the firm. I loved the friendly atmosphere, and the people I worked with were the greatest. I also had the opportunity to use my skills in other areas of IP law. I felt valued and respected. I would go back as a permanent employee in a heartbeat!
Terrific people, great working environment
Not the best commute, but flexible working hours and reasonable parking made up for it
A great firm with benefits, unfortunately, I got caught in a firmwide layoff.
Legal Assistant (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – August 14, 2015
The only negative is that the team work effect, is unrealistic. They tend to overwork you. As a professional assistant you are assigned four (4) attorneys. When a co-worker is out, they expect you to cover your four attorneys plus two of the assistant that is out attorneys.
Records and Imaging (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 25, 2015
The location was in center city Philadelphia PA, the view from my cubical was amazing. Everyday i would wake up at 7am to eat breakfast and get ready in order to catch the bus to work everyday at 8am in order to get to work on time. I would clock in, greet my coworkers and start my world day. I would grab a box of files and begin to archive them into the computer system, print the labels, then place them in boxes once again. The work environment is very nice and my coworkers are very welcoming.

Staff (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, pa – September 6, 2013
You can do nothing here all day and never get fired. There is so much dead weight in this law firm. People collect pay checks and put in for a lot of over time and don't even work. They sit on the Internet all day long. Management will never do or say anything to them. And they know this. Now that jobs are being outsourced left and right thanks to the ones who cheated the company. Good, hard workers will be out of jobs. Blank Rome should look to restructure (get rid of the dead weight) make Hours 9-5 or 10-6 ( to save money) and keep more things in house. They use to have a wonderful name and treat their employees with respect. Now it's a cut throat firm. They don't ever recognize staff as other competitor firms do. Things are never communicated well. Staff is always left in the dark. And favoritism is all over this firm.
