That firm is a huge shithole. Never met anyone that didn't absolutely hate working there. But in response to your question, yes, but not everywhere.

i work with someone who lateraled from there. nothing good to say about that place, and they apparently include "office cleanliness" on your yearly evaluation. and actually take the bullshit evaluation process seriously. it sounds terrible.

i thought she was kidding at first. why the fuck would they care about that? i have piles and piles of shit all over my office. my wife came by one time and was horrified.

they're also like a shitlaw ID firm with some of their time constraints - like "only bill 5 hours on that MTD. yeah, we know it will take 35, but we can only bill the client 5 hours. just don't write down the other 30 hours."

As a first year, I worked directly with a equity partner on a tenant estoppel. I thought she was a paralegal, since the work was so routine and cut and paste. It turned out she's been with the firm for twenty years. LJL.

From the ABA Journal:

Seyfarth had a strong year in 2016, with a 6 percent increase in gross revenue and a 3 percent increase in profits per partner, according to the Am Law Daily. But sources told that publication and others that revenue for the first quarter of 2017 was below expectations.

ONE | BELOW AVERAGE | QUARTER

When I was in HS I worked for a construction subcontractor. They had a downturn in business and the OWNER'S SON voluntarily took a layoff because he was single and the other workers had wives & families they needed to support. Millionaire Seyferth partners: oops temporary decline in revenue let's axe some juniors :)

Firm is trying to stop its imploding. Several more to follow.

Worst part of it all is, this will be held against the jobless associates looking for work. That is why the legal profession is shitty.
