    Been here a while now. Everything is a pro, in my opinion. Management is friendly, benefits are amazing and work/life balance is valued.

    Inconvénients

    Can't think of anything for this place!

    J'ai travaillé chez Knobbe Martens Olson & Bear en Contrat Permanent

    Avantages

    Good industry reputation (although largely based on the past).

    Inconvénients

    It’s really crazy that the Kool Aid around this place is that they fixed biglaw. It is a sort of communism fixed capitalism situation. I went into traditional biglaw from this place and it could not feel any better. The quirks of this place really hold them down in my opinion. For example, making people partner after their 6th year sounds great, but making a bunch of people partner who have no work and have never shown they can bring in work is not smart. You end up with a bunch of “partners” doing Office Actions themselves. Billed hours are another example. It is routine at this place for partners to get clients by promising ridiculously low budgets and then cutting the associate’s time. Since an associate only gets credited for “billed” hours they end taking the burden from the partner taking low budget work. The compensation issue is also huge. Sure, they tell you they are only 10k below market. But that is only base salary for the first year. As the years go on the gap gets much bigger, add in Cravath bonuses and a few years down the line you are about 100k behind. Oh, but you are sticking around to make partner? Guess what, a starting partner is making MUCH less than a senior associate at a Cravath scale firm.

    For whatever reason, Knobbe doesn’t have the high quality work anymore. If having a constant stream of work and getting credit for all your time is what you expect from a firm, then steer clear of Knobbe.

    Conseils à la direction

    Stop spreading lies about the pitfalls of traditional firms because that is what your firm needs to become to survive.

    Avantages

    Excellent benefits. They had a lot of staff appreciation days. Whenever there was a meeting it was catered, if you had to work late you could order dinner in as well.

    Inconvénients

    The different departments could be really cliquey. I, personally, felt alienated by my coworkers because no one liked the person I was assisting. When I needed to get coverage for days off, I would have to ask several times before someone would finally agree. It is a litigation law firm, so you are expected to work long hours when needed.

    Avantages

    7.5 hour workday with 8.0 hour workday pay

    Inconvénients

    Used to tout themselves as a "lifestyle" firm that cared about it's employees well-being (which includes worklife balance, family obligations, etc.) but are harrassed by admin for the way you use your own accrued PTO time. (its supposedly at your discretion without consequence) Particularly if it's used in small/short increments so you can attend your childs events, doctor appointments, personal appointments or to extend a weekend (usually due to burnout). They want you to use your time in "large chunks". I've heard of employees being told they "took all this time off and have nothing to show for it" when their time was used for children's events or care sick children. It may even end up on your review. But there is nothing in the firm's employee manual stating this is a no-no.

    Conseils à la direction

    Spend more time acknowledging your employees accomplishments rather than focusing in minor defects or errors. Value your employees by valuing the things that are important to them such as family instead of nit-picking for their use of PTO to attend to family matters.
    Corporate Admin needs to be more proactive in finding out what's really going on in their satellite offices. Especially those that are seemingly "perfect" (San Diego). The employees are quiet for a reason. They are afraid of retaliation because they've seen it happen on numerous occassions. Try implementing a truly anonymous written (non-computer generated) employee satisfaction survey that asks the pertinent questions about how they feel as an employee working in that office and what can be improved. you might be surprised.
