Conflict Research Analyst (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 22, 2018
Working at Wilson Elser was the worst working experience I could ever imagine. My supervisor was hostile, non-communicative, hypocritical, inappropriate, unorganized, and had poor teaching skills. My boss clearly chose favorites (through announcement). Assignments were impossible to complete, depending on who were doing them for each person had entirely different standards. Both my boss and supervisor fostered an unhealthy, unnecessarily competitive environment.
Develop relationships and collaborations and you will be fine
Professional Staff Member (Current Employee) – White Plains, NY – March 21, 2018
Every job is what you make of it, and here it is the same. I feel lucky that I have an engaging and collaborative team available to me. I support all offices so there are many different personalities to navigate which can be challenging but also rewarding if you like to make genuine connections with people. The firm and regional managing partners genuinely care about their employees, and as I write this, I am doing it from home because they felt it was too dangerous to have people come into the office during a snowstorm. The partners are consistently trying to make the organization a better place for people to work and trying to give the support and training necessary for all associates and professional staff to be successful. In the long run investing in your people and resources is the best way to continue success and I currently feel that they do that and I hope that it continues.
work life balance, compensation, engaging work, and great team enviornment
Desktop Support (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 9, 2018
A place you will fit 40 hrs of work in 24 hrs. each week. You are forced to get distracted, Everything is just a mess where you will waste tons of paper because management wants you to print out every email for each meeting which is allot. You will go through pads of Post-Its because the company is so far behind and because it's local management in the LA area is refusing to adapt to todays collaboration tools that can save tons of paper and grief.
Litigation Secretary (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – November 6, 2017
I knew I did not want to stay at this firm after 2 weeks of employment. It was stressful and it lacked communication from attorney to assistant. The office manager was bipolar. She was nice one day and then the next day, she would scream from the top of her lungs if she felt she was not in control of a situation.
A paycheck every 2 weeks
Stressful, lack of communication and manager was unprofessional

Billing Coordinator (Former Employee) – White Plains, NY – July 17, 2017
I was a billing coordinator for the white plains office. Enjoyed it as much as I could. They had the oldest systems used to process payments. It took time to adjust. The billing manager/supervisor is garbage. Wilson Elser is great on the outside but garbage on the inside

Law Clerk (Former Employee) – Manhattan, NY – March 22, 2017
High billing expectations with well below market pay. Very high attrition rate due to poor work life balance and demanding hours. I would not recommend this company. Also very sexist environment in my opinion.
A typical day at work consists of filing and miscellaneous projects for attorneys. I have learned a lot about the court systems, especially since I want to go to law school. Management is very one-sided. My co-workers make my job a lot easier and fun. The hardest part of the job is completing tasks that have a deadline, and you're given the task at the last minute. The most enjoyable part is that I get to be a student and learn new things along the way!
Facilities & Purchasing Supervisor (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 16, 2015
a typical day at work required a lot of communication with managers and adminstrative staff. I became a better negotiator the more I delt with different personalities. Staff was positve and friendly, Everyone helped one another to acheive goals. Their wasn't really a hard part because I was constantly learning new things that eventually made my job more interesting and easier making me more productive. the most enjoyable part was the company celebrations through out the year.
Free lunches right before holidays and closing early.
Legal Records Clerk (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – July 21, 2014
