A Nice Place to Work, with a Few Problems
Contract Employee (Former Employee) – Business Services Center – January 16, 2016
WilmerHale's Business Service Center in Dayton, Ohio is a nice place to work. The pay is good, and I have heard that the benefits are good (I worked as a full-time temp without benefits). The people working there are some of the nicest, friendliest people I have ever worked with. However, there seems to be a significant amount of work needed to be completed after-hours, and WilmerHale expects its employees to stay after-hours on very short notice. The management staff in individual departments is fantastic, and every manager is very friendly. Many positions at this office require significant communication with legal staff at WilmerHale offices around the world. Some of that staff (partners, associates, and professional staff) seem to give the impression that dealing with the Dayton office is a hassle, and are sometimes not friendly. Also, there is very little opportunity for advancement. Overall, this is a nice place to work if these issues are not a problem for you.
Good Compensation, Firm Culture, Friendly Nature of Co-Workers
After-Hours Requirements on Short-Notice, Unfriendly Employees in other Offices, Few Opportunities for Advancement
