Event and Marketing Assistant (Former Employee), New York, NYJune 12, 2014
Pros: represents the standard for global law firms

When I first started working at Bryan Cave, I loved the people and the job. When the economy tanked their were massive layoffs and the work environment changed. The employee morale declined and the compensation suffered. However, I have very fond memories of Bryan Cave and credit them for my knowledge of business practices and the standard I comport – more... myself in the workplace. – less

Interesting
Conference Room Service Assistant (Current Employee), Atlanta, GA.April 28, 2014
Pros: free lunches from time to time
Cons: healthcare and advancement
A typical work day would consist of clearing and refreshing conference rooms, interacting with clients, co-workers and Management. Always going above and beyond to make sure the clients' and Attorneys' are satisfied with their request per each conference setting.

The hardest part of this job is making sure every task is completed in a thorough manner. – more... Multitasking is a must for this particular position.

The most enjoyable part of this job is being able to interact with various clients. It's surprisingly comforting how much you can have in common with someone who you think is of a higher authority and or level than yourself.

The most important aspect of this job is being able to get along with your peers. We all get along very well and it makes the environment job much more pleasant to work in. – less

My team made even mundane tasks worth perfecting
Marketing - Data Steward (Former Employee), Atlanta, GADecember 9, 2013
Pros: the people i worked with were great
Cons: i had an office with no windows on a quiet floor
I worked as part of a team to help attorneys on many different levels. The scope of my job was far more diverse than my title suggests. Being able to work outside of my job description made the job worthwhile. I was able to gain a lot of experience instead of being boxed in by a title.

My first priority was record keeping for the team and for local – more... and national firm contacts. I was involved in extensive research for CRM, eMarketing, and other research tools. In addition to this basic directive, I had experience with:

- Market/industry research
- Writing (PR - online and print)
- Event management
- Routine website updates
- Award submissions coordination across 3 offices – less

A quality global corporate law firm
Development role (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOJuly 11, 2013
Pros: quality law firm with a quality culture
Cons: a few self-important puffy chested "leaders" in st. louis, watered down attorney base outside of mo
Bryan Cave has grown from a St. Louis based firm into a recognizable national and international player among major corporate law firms. The caliber and quality of lawyers is very spotty across offices once you get outside of St. Louis, but that's because the firm isn't a hi-profile brand in any of its other markets outside of Missouri. Hi quality people, – more... a good culture, a firm of ladies and gentleman. Some outstanding law practices and lawyers in certain niches. – less

Pros: good salary
Cons: everything else
The Phoenix office used to be a great place to work. It is now the worst place I've ever worked. Not enough staff, clueless management and a terrible managing partner.

Senior Real Estate Paralegal (Former Employee), New York, NYApril 10, 2012
Pros: travel and firm outings. great office space
Cons: communication.
Projects were challenging and interesting. Varied from day to day. Not the friendliest group of attorneys, but the few that were are worth knowing. The Paralegals and Secretaries were all worth knowing and a pleasure to work with.

Legal Secretary/Assistant (Former Employee), Dallas, TXFebruary 9, 2012
Pros: pleasant environment, good salary
Cons: inhibits software usage, slows productivity
Bryan Cave LLP is a professional law firm with a pleasant environment. I would prefer more flexibility in use of software applications and felt their restrictions inhibited document production rather than improving it. The atmosphere is friendly and the attorneys are outgoing.
