    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Wilson Elser full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free parking, paid holidays, bereavement compensation

    Cons

    There was a high turnover rate of paralegals at the office that I worked at. No year end bonuses for legal assistants and paralegals. There were some misrepresentations about the office during my initial interview. They weren't big misrepresentations, but they left me with trust issues with management.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice for management. I don't think my advice would help. I was not a good fit for the office.

    Cons

    lack of compensation. lack of support staff. software was outdated. communication poor. I think this was the worst job I ever had. supervisor had not oversight and was verbally abusive.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your help more. The pay was way under the market.

      I have been working at Wilson Elser full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Very good benefits at a good price. New offices. On-Site Cafe, free parking

      Cons

      They hardly close the office during blizzards. Sometimes they open with a delay. When it snows at work they hardly let you leave early. No bonuses Too many systematic layoffs that occur Feb-Apr. Everyone automatically worries. Out sourcing of positions happens as well. Good performance reviews do not ensure that you will not get l;aid off. Very little room for growth

      Advice to Management

      Perhaps trim the ever expanding Marketing Dept that's not helping to bring in new business - hence all the lay offs.?
