This is Big Law at it's best. I enjoyed the culture and the people. The partners were easy to talk to and always had their doors open.

Schiff Hardin is a great place to work. Management treats staff like family and for a 150 year old law firm, that's incredible. Great benefits. Smart people.

It's A Job!!
Records Clerk (Current Employee), Chicago, ILJuly 4, 2013
Pros: benefits
Cons: only 1 hour lunch break and no 15 min breaks.
If you are not a lawyer or a manager then you won't move up much here. Moving around, within the company, has also proven difficult for me. What I like about working here is that there is no pressure to do this or to do that, maybe it's because I already know what is expected of me? I come in and do my job, I take my lunch break, come back and work – more... and go home at the end of the day with very minimal or no direction from management. The hardest part of the job is management when they do interact with employees. I recently received a bad review of my job performance as I had stopped my normal duties to perform other duties the work flow coordinator asked me to do. Once the review was out the coordinator did not stand up for me or say anything in my defense. Management also tends play favorites when it comes to compensation and perks. Coworkers among the departments are very friendly though. While growing up I always wanted to be an attorney, accountant or business man. Working here and dealing with the professionals me realize this is not the type of work environment I want. – less
