    It seems partners are much more flexible with associates who have kids than with those who don’t. If it’s okay for my colleague with a kid to leave at 5 pm and log on later, why isn’t that the same for me (no kids)? My obligations might be different, but I still have a life and want to be able to do certain things, like catch that evening workout class or cook dinner for my partner. As you can probably tell, my firm is operating 100% in person. There is no point here — I’m just whining.

    Pros

    People (work colleagues) some outstanding people

    Cons

    Process driven but too many which stops the business from being effective. Meetings for the sake of meetings. One week 31 meetings totalling 43 hours.

    Good building and members who want to work with you and provide ongoing support

    Cons

    Always pushing for the best from you, but they don’t hide this from the outset and they always support you

    AVOID AVOID AVOID.

    Sep 3, 2020 - Senior Lawyer in Blackburn, England, England

    Pros

    Nice building but all smoke and mirrors. Do not be fooled. Not point having a nice building when you are constantly savilence when you leave your desk. EVEN IF YOU GO TO THE TOILET.

    Cons

    Senior management is a horrendous. The MD is the literal definition of unprofessional, racist and a complete joke of a lawyer. Culture as a whole is a manifestation of bullying and unrealistic expectations. You are paid pennys under false pretences of bonuses which they never pay out, future pay rises and future progression which never happens. You are excepted to work late and weekends for no extra pay despite being paid pennys and when done so this is still not enough. A reputation of avoiding payments, over billing clients and not paying wages correctly. I would not recommend anyone work here or be associated with such a company and its reputation. Avoid like covid and at all costs. What a disease of a firm. Run by individuals who are trained to bully their staff in submission. The Core values are a load of crap that they spin. Transparency does not exist in this firm. Senior management team are a bunch of high schoolers gossip about their employees and their personal lives.

    Pros

    Nice canteen and staff facilities other than that nothing

    Cons

    A business full of process, a managing director who simply lies to you. Poor business practice with solicitors over billing customers. Biggest mistake of my career. I would rather work shovelling horse crap all day.

    Pros

    Beautiful offices in a good location with free parking and high levels of security and systems in place. Those that own the business have a real desire to achieve which can feel uplifting. The salary was good for a law firm outside the city centre Many friendly colleagues/ associates who make you feel welcome. There are some experienced and respected fee earners there.

    Cons

    It doesn’t feel like you’re working for a Law Firm . Middle management seem to follow a bespoke business model that is implemented by non qualified or unsuitably qualified staff. Rather oppressive systems are imposed on staff regardless of levels/ experience and there is a high degree of somewhat stifling control and pressure which has a negative impact .Lip service is paid to listening to staff comments and needs/suggestion. There are knee jerk and potentially reckless management decisions which is unerving as an employee.

    You are not just a number here, you are all family

    Pros

    - You speak to managers and the senior management team on a daily basis as you would any other colleague which puts you at ease. - The senior management sit and have lunch with employees. - You are part of a family when you join LM. The culture here is second to none. - When you prove yourself, (as you have to do in any business) your goals and achievements are pushed by management and the team. - The events held by the management team are incredible, no other business spends the amount of money our management team do to celebrate and have team building across the group, not just the firm. - We have a pool table, table tennis, mini golf and xbox in our canteen area and we have a tea lady who brings us tea/coffee in the morning.. what more could you ask for in employment?

    Cons

    Pay rises do not occur as often as you would like and bonuses are not that easy to obtain once you hit your targets.
