Interesting work.
Senior Associate (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAMarch 18, 2014
A good firm, with nice people. It is a smaller office, so although it is a large firm it feels like a mid-sized one. Lots of opportunity for responsibility early on.

Horrible office, Menlo Park, CA
Former employee (Former Employee), Menlo ParkJanuary 11, 2014
Pros: secretaries and most attorneys are great!
Cons: worst management in menlo park
Stay away from this firm if at all possible. The morale in the office is horrible due to management. Your job description will not be the job that you actually do and they will add more and more, but will not be compensated accordingly. Bonuses are paltry and do not match your reviews. Treat employees like second class citizens!

The behavior of Capital – more... Partners are appalling, at best. Screaming shouting, but if they bring in the billing dollars, no repercussions at all. – less

Finish up all lose filing from the day before and start a new bunch until finished with current lose filling. While keeping current indexes on the file clips of court filed documents. – more... Dead file any jackets that are up for offsite storage.
Days I would cover phones I would open the switch board. Directing all calls from voice mail to online. Take down or forward all voice mail left on main switch board to correct person. Keep up with current conference room request threw out the day. Including catering for lunch breakfast and sometimes dinner. Also confirming visiting attorney request for office and computer set up. – less

Good Benefits; Poor HR Management
Paralegal (Former Employee), Irvine, CAJuly 3, 2012
Pros: benefits
Cons: hr
Good benefits; HR has no handle on the staff, i.e., who the workers are--and they tend to make judgment on gossip. The staff that kisses up to HR keeps their positions.

Most of the attorneys are great to work with though. The firm continues to downsize and there is no job security--no matter how long you've been there--and no matter if you have had – more... great reviews from the attorneys. – less
