Productive, demanding, and highly stressful place to work.
Sr. Legal Secretary (IP) / Case Management (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – March 6, 2016
Fish & Richardson is a place that demands nothing less than the best. A normal work-day is fast paced with high expectations. You'll learn the essence of working under extreme pressure and the importance of time management in order to meet deadlines. It is a team environment; working closely with co-workers is a must. In my position, the most difficult part of the job is having to meet immediate deadlines that are set by international clients when there is a 13 to 14 hour time difference. The most enjoyable part of the job is when a client contacts you personally or sends a card saying "thank you" and gives recognition for the hard work and assistance.
Accounts Receivable Coordinator (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – March 5, 2015
I totally enjoyed my job at Fish & Richardson for the past 12 years. My boss was extremely nice and caring. He did not micro-manager if you needed help with anything he always had an open door policy. The only reason I am still not at Fish is because they outsourced the Financial Organization to their office in Minnesota. The majority of my co-workers were very nice and team players. I can honestly say I enjoyed coming to work every day, I knew exactly what was expected of me. I think the hardest part of the job is the end of each quarter trying to projected what money will be coming in and the hardest was the end of our fiscal year which is in December. Everyone is having a great time but in Accounts Receivable the pressure is on you to meet the CFO'S target.
Good job environment with an emphasis on learning and competence.
Litigation Secretary (Former Employee) – Menlo Park, CA – August 22, 2014
Fish encouraged the secretarial staff to become experts in Word, and I was close to taking the MOUS exam when I decided to look for work in San Francisco. I left Fish because the commute from San Francisco to Menlo Park became burdensome.
Good people to work with in a fast paced work environment.
Transfer Specialist (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – July 14, 2014
In my department there are many quick turn-around projects as well as large long term projects. The supervisors are available to discuss workload strategy and there is great teamwork among the co-workers.
flexibility, open office policy, collegiate atmosphere
Litigation Support Analyst (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – February 14, 2013
I thought I was going to retire with this company. It was an excellent atmosphere with wonderful coworkers and I was truly appreciated for the hard work that I provided. Unfortunately, in the Summer of 2012, the powers that be decided to restructure Fish's entire litigation support model, and I was among dozens of analysts and paralegals who were let go.
