    I worked at Bremer & Whyte Llp full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Congenial environment, lots of support and wide open opportunities for associates, friendly associates and excellent support staff. The managing partner and head of HR are class acts and very engaging; they make the attorneys feel supported and appreciated, especially when warranted! There are also appears to be an accessible path to making partner for some of the more veteran (but still very young) attorneys, which is...

    Cons

    I personally did not experience any, so I cannot speak to any downsides.

    Advice to Management

    Open a central LA office! There certainly seems to be enough business!

    I have been working at Bremer & Whyte Llp full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I am based in the Newport Beach office, but work closely with people from all 7 offices daily. There is open communication between Partners, associates, and staff. Everyone is friendly and happy to help. On the first day, they take new employees around the office to introduce you to everyone. Some activities they do are- monthly food trucks in the summer, Halloween Party, Thanksgiving lunch, Holiday Office party, and...

    Cons

    Could use some snacks in the kitchen, but they do provide bagels every Friday.

    I have been working at Bremer & Whyte Llp full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Open door policy, great atmosphere, lots of opportunity to gain experience.

    Cons

    Same cons as any other defense law firm. It is important that you are billing, there is stressful times to make deadlines, and some of the support staff can't keep up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. I have been presently surprised by my work here at Bremer Whyte. It is not the grind that most defense firms are. Maybe get some more paralegals to help with busy work.

    I worked at Bremer & Whyte Llp full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I worked at the Woodland Hills office for four years. I left to spend more time at home with my small children. During my time at BWBO I became pregnant, was on extended maternity leave and came back as a mom with babies and then toddlers. Through it all BWBO was so accommodating and made things as easy as possible for me while at the same time continuing to give me interesting and challenging case assignments. I was...

    Cons

    This is not really a negative, but it is important to note that if you have any issues or need help or direction you need to speak up to the right person, no one is going to read your mind.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back formal office holiday parties! 😉

        Former Employee - Secretarial Assistant/Typist in Woodland Hills, CA

        I worked at Bremer & Whyte Llp part-time for less than a year

        Pros

        I enjoyed working at the Woodland Hills office of this firm with such genuine, motivated people in an engaging, professional environment. Employees are treated like family and collaborate well together. My contributions felt valued, and the patience and assistance of experienced employees during the training process was encouraging.

        I worked at Bremer & Whyte Llp full-time for less than a year

        Pros

        My time with Bremer Whyte Brown & O'Meara was absolutely amazing, and I sincerely have only positive things to say about this firm, and the incredible staff I have had the pleasure of meeting. Everyone I have had the opportunity to work with and meet while I worked at BWBO were so beyond wonderful. I can honestly say that I will miss working in such a positive working and learning environment.

        Cons

        Well a Negative to a positive, Positive: They have "Bagel Fridays" Negative to that: sometimes I wouldn't get a jalapeno bagel, and it's quite tempting to cheat on your diet when you have bagel Fridays.. but really, I have nothing negative to say. I would still be working here if it weren't for my commute, and another job falling into my lap.

        Advice to Management

        Absolutely great job, thank you for being so welcoming and approachable! It's apparent you put a lot into making sure the transition is as easy as possible for a new employee and it's noticeable!
