    Ich arbeite seit mehr als einem Jahr bei Marshall Dennehey Warner Coleman & Goggin (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    A lot of nice people and talented attorneys.

    Kontras

    Pay is low and billable hour requirements are very high. Management is indifferent to associates, and ignores issues within the firm unless they’re at partner level. There is a lot of turnover at the associate level because of this.

    Pros

    Free parking in suburban offices. Pre-tax dollars can be used for public transportation in urban offices. High turnover (this is really a con) is indicative that you should GTFO!

    Kontras

    Super low pay (think $80,000-$100,000) for associates, especially compared with peer firms and the amount of work assigned. No bonus schedule - people get $500.00 and that's their bonus! It is insulting. No compensation program - most people will not get salary increases no matter how much or how little they work. Focus on billables distracts from good work. Associates reprimanded often for not meeting... billables. Low focus on minority retention and women attorney retention. They pay a lot of attention initially for their statistics and reporting figures to local papers, etc., but ultimately don't care if you succeed or not. Only defense work - basically all insurance. Most attorneys did not attend prestigious schools and are more like "street" attorneys. Those who did attend prestigious colleges and law schools are an afterthought and not treated too well. There is a tech/IT mandatory training - so the firm can basically check a box saying they complied with a training on how to save documents and send emails. That way if anyone accidentally messes up, it's all on the individual and firm can disclaim liability. The training is pointless as everything that is taught is easily learned by associates who grew up in the past few decades. There is also a billing "training," in which associates are talked AT - basically someone reads off a piece of paper some billing codes and then associates are told they cannot count any time unless it is billable. There is zero substantive legal training and zero HR training. Ramp up time is expected to be very quick - instantaneous really. There is a steep learning curve. Partners are critical and demanding. They can be smart and have good cases sometimes too, but they disrespect associates, especially female and minority associates.

    Pay associates more money. The starting salaries are unacceptably low. Bonuses are terrible. Salary increases year over year are terrible. Vacations and paid time off are unheard of at this firm - why? You don't take care of your associates - the backbone of your firm. They do all the grunt work and they are mistreated.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule; most attorneys are nice. Good benefits package. Somewhat collegial environment. Support staff is great and very helpful.

    Kontras

    Management is harsh and out of touch. Encourages you to make own work schedule then chastises you for doing so. Don't care about work-life balance, only billable hours. Management is also super unorganized. Things take forever. Low salary for a firm of this size too.

    Rat an das Management

    Be more personable and clear about policies.

    Ich habe für mehr als ein Jahr bei Marshall Dennehey Warner Coleman & Goggin gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    If you like working red-car blue car casualty cases or slip and fall it's awesome!

    Kontras

    Requiring associates to bill anywhere from 200-235 hours per month. While people claim that this is what "big firms" do, none of the elite firms (which MD is not) in Pittsburgh require their associates to come anywhere near that amount of time. Plus, they still pay a lot higher than MD does. No work/life balance at all, taking time off is not advised. No upward progress - no bonuses (except for the 7 different... levels of shareholders). They bleed you dry until you quit. Frankly, they bank on you not having many opportunities to go somewhere else based on their reputation.

    Take a look at why some partners have so much associate turn-over. Fool me once...

    Kontras

    1) Like any big firm, the billing expectation can be off putting for those that cannot handle it 2) Vacation time can be hard to come by 3) Not a place for undedicated lawyers

    Rat an das Management

    Marshall has an open door policy. Therefore, advice to upper manager is a phone call away.

    Pros

    Pay is good for insurance defense but still lower than the white shoe law firms; there should be enough fellow associates for coverage if necessary; excellent real world experience such as having your own caseload, going on deps, going to court; cases can be interesting, depending on what you get; there should be enough staff to help out (whether this actually goes into effect depends on the office and the office... manager); firm has a very good reputation state-wide;

    Kontras

    Extremely high billable hours exceeding 190 a month; focus is on billing and not about winning cases or doing a good job; morale is bad because everyone is overworked; secretaries are overworked so they are unable to do the work quickly enough to keep up with the ridiculous pace; no perks in the workplace; working at home is frowned upon even though it is an option; you feel constantly unsupported by your attorney... managers who are attempting to get ahead on their own; even though there is nearly 6 months of partially paid leave after you have a baby, they do not offer part-time so when you get back to work, you hit the ground running all over again. The billables only get higher the longer you stay there. The reason for the high billables is that the hourly rates are so low. I left for a better life style.

    Better to have lower pay and less hours than high pay and more hours; improve the employee perks, such as offering paid lunches or fun weekly activities. The morale is horrible and nobody wants to be at work.
