    Pros

    The people are really nice. If you work hard for them, they will work hard for you.

  2. "Not terrible"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Associate 

    I have been working at Jackson Lewis full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Support staff is amazing and always willing to lend a helping hand.

    Cons

    If you do anything other than straight up litigation/wage hour, no one knows what to do with you.

    Advice to Management

    Different groups within the firm have different needs. It's important not to streamline practices across the entire firm.
