Zero Job Security
Staff (Current Employee), Chicago, ILJuly 2, 2014
Pros: short work days
Cons: short pay; no job security
Word to the wise-- make sure that you like your starting salary, as you'll be living on it for awhile. staff at the Chicago office has not had a raise for 4 of the last 5 years, and bonuses were eliminated. More than half the lawyers have left the firm, and staff has been cut back drastically. (Many have had their hours and salaries cut also). Not a – more... place to go if you're looking for job security..... – less

getting worse by the day
staff (Former Employee), Pittsburgh PANovember 18, 2013
Pros: few
Cons: no raises, no appreciation for job well done - won't have your back
before 2008 it was a good place to work. after that they started expanding - beginning with 12 offices and ending with 44. Corporate greed is the gospel of this place. Christmas parties used to be elaborate - now a buffet in large conference room serving polish sausage and pierogies. Admin day (formerly secretary day) used to be large extravagant lunches – more... with really nice gifts - recently was a packet of seeds and icecream. Raises are small if at all and they took 5 days off the more seniors employees. Don't go there. – less

Not a good place to work!
Credit (Former Employee), Pittsburgh PAApril 15, 2013
Pros: the staff is superb!
The firm continues to grow and merge and at the same time does not provide a cost of living raise to the employees nor has the employees received pay raise or bonus for a few years. The management continues to point their finger at the economy. It is a prime example of Corporate Greed!

Wow, thanks for the heads up. I have heard that they do not give a raise and did not treat their staff very well.
