    I worked at Marshall Dennehey Warner Coleman & Goggin full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Affordable insurance. That is all.

    Cons

    Very bad management team. Assistants are overworked and underpaid. Very strict rules. They only care about the attorneys, which are overworked as well. No bonuses for staff. Again, terrible mid-level and high-level management team. I can't recommend this firm. Low pay. No perks.

    I have been working at Marshall Dennehey Warner Coleman & Goggin full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Advancement within the Firm is merit-based; emphasis on promoting and supporting diversity; the best way to learn how to litigate (busy docket, plenty of work at all levels of complexity so younger attorneys get great training), technology greatly assists in efficiency and productivity, IT Department second to none; Firm commitment to providing best tech support and products greatly enhances my practice; but above all, friendly, hard-working, humble folks at all levels led by visionary leadership that encourages excellence.

    Cons

    The hourly requirement is demanding and does make it a challenge to achieve a more desirable work-life balance,

    Pros

    Partners have an open door policy and are always happy to help. No FaceTime requirement. Challenging billables, but you are provided the opportunity to reach it if you are willing to work hard. Every attorney is expected to make partner and there is no requirement to have a book to do so. For defense work, salaries are great.

    Cons

    Very small bonuses for associates.

    I have been working at Marshall Dennehey Warner Coleman & Goggin full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    MDWCG gives the employee chances to improve themselves if they don't do their job to the best of their ability, even after numerous probation periods. MDWCG moves people from within the company up, I personally started as the receptionist now I'm work for one of the Managing Directors of the Company and couldn't be more happy in my position. MDWCG takes care of their employees especially at this difficult time.

    Cons

    MDWCG may give too many chances to employees who don't do their job or buck against the system.
