Fenwick & West once a great firm

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) Mountain View, CA (US)

ProsThe firm was a very good place to work. Things have changed and not for the better. To much favoritism for the younger staff and not for professionlism or competence.

ConsThe management is blind to what some employees do. Many employees are hard workers and not "in your face" social butterflies. Yet management seems to prefer the social butterflies to the hard workers. Especially the ones that brown nose them.

Advice to Senior ManagementSenior Management should really stand back and take a good look at the managers they have in place and realize that some of them are not people persons and treat their staff with disdain and sometimes cruelly. Once a leopard always a leopard and the spots will never change. You can take a panther and tame it and domesticate it, but in reality it is still a panther and their inate being is to be a panther. Hopefully before the firm collapses because of this blindness, Senior management will wake up to the fact that management is letting go of some really good employees and keeping the young, thin, but very incompetent ones.

    Best biglaw firm you could work for.

    Associate (Former Employee) Mountain View, CA (US)

    I worked at Fenwick & West full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Top practice in the country for corporate law for tech companies. Partners are supportive and friendly--no one yells at you, partners seem to… Cons: It's still a law firm, so there will be long hours and the work can be monotonous. As an attorney, there isn't great 24… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    Interesting. They are very concerned about maintain their status of "one of the best places to work", but fall short.

    Legal Secretary (Current Employee) Mountain View, CA (US)

    I have been working at Fenwick & West full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: Some really great people here. Cons: Still very hierarchal in nature (what can you say, it's a law firm!). Great… Advice to Senior Management: None for staff. Just come do you job. More
