Legal Assistant/Secretary, Downtown Los Angeles - July 21, 2016
Average place to work. Nothing special. No Christmas bonus. No real Christmas party. Company offers bare minimum to keep employees. Lets older people go. Gearing towards a younger firm. We are in the second year of the merger. There are a lot of rules, but I guess that goes along with being a large firm. If you are having problems with an attorney, there is no way to move around within the branch offices as they are too small and specialized (unlike a firm like O'Melveny & Myers). Home office is clueless about litigation work in Los Angeles.
