Lots of legal talent, but becoming very cut-throat
Of Counsel (Current Employee) – Portland, OR – October 9, 2017
Stoel Rives has several very excellent attorneys and has for many years had a firm culture of respect and collegiality; however, as the legal industry becomes more competitive and cut-throat, the powers at Stoel Rives have decided to change with it. Much of the unwelcome change has come as a result of the firm's growth and expansion. Some of the recent management decisions have demonstrated a complete lack of loyalty and respect for employees and partners who have been at the firm for years. While there's still a lot of legal talent at Stoel Rives, it's not the firm it once was.
Good legal work and lots of excellent legal talent.
Becoming very bureaucratic and cut-throat.
