    I worked at Kaufman Borgeest & Ryan, LLP full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A stepping stone to other more growth-oriented opportunities.

    Cons

    No opportunities for growth, even after a number of years.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees the opportunities to grow - mentor and train them; don’t stifle their abilities and creativities.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Kaufman Borgeest & Ryan, LLP full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There were some great attorneys at the Calabasas location. It was a pretty easy going job. Sometimes you'd get swamped, but there were times when there really wasn't much to do.

    Cons

    The California office is the black sheep of the company. They very clearly care more about their East Coast offices. HR treats the support staff with less respect. The job was far to slow paced for me and there was no room to move up even if you asked.

    I worked at Kaufman Borgeest & Ryan, LLP part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Smaller/smallest branch than the east coast offices, meant more experience / opportunities to learn.

    Cons

    As a result many understaffed positions and high work volume.

      I have been working at Kaufman Borgeest & Ryan, LLP full-time

      Pros

      Where to begin? I love it here. Everyone is treated with respect. Partners and associates alike are supportive, approachable and helpful. Flexible work options. Decent benefits. Frequent socials which enable you to meet and interact with attorneys from other offices. The workplace culture here is fantastic. As for the billable hours, well, they are about the same in any NYC - based firm. If you have to bill 2100 hours,...

      Cons

      Onboarding of new hires, particularly with respect to technological resources, could be better

      I worked at Kaufman Borgeest & Ryan, LLP full-time

      Pros

      Great time off, holidays and benefits. Most attorneys and staff are great.

      Cons

      Give more duties and responsibilities than you were told when hired and they do not compensate you for it. Raises are basically the same whether you get a great or bad review. Very obvious segregation between attorneys and staff.
