Pros & Cons
Amazing culture, mentors, work-life balance. The company really invests in the graduates and makes the graduate year as beneficial and enjoyable as possible. There are so many opportunities for graduates to do compulsory and non-compulsory training seminars, go to events and meet new people.
It has an amazing work culture. Everyone is very supportive and hands on. They actively provide feedback on your work and help you grow as a young lawyer
The culture and inclusiveness is fantastic. I have definitely felt part of the team at the firm since day one. I have been very supported throughout the transition from University to working life and couldn't be happier.
The best thing about working at Lander & Rogers is the people. The firm engenders a friendly, warm and supportive work culture.
Doesn't have the breadth of practice areas as larger firms
I wouldn't say there's a "worst" thing. One of the things that is potentially a downfall for some people, is the fact there is limited cross jurisdictional work, but this is the case with any domestic firm.
What Insiders Say
Meeting your budget, being enthusiastic and showing dedication, having great feedback from supervisors and obviously, positions being available at the time.
We currently have a program called Paperlite where we are minimising paper and encouraging people to work predominately using technology to benefit the environment. Every team has a target and Paperlite leaders. I personally worked on this program to assist us moving into our new office. We also donate to important causes and take pro bono work seriously. I have worked on a number of pro bono matters.
Feels like a relatively flat structure - i.e.. partners are approachable and are generally very willing to guide. Socialising is strong between colleagues. We have active social committees and socialising outside of office hours if very common. In terms of teamwork, the firm does not suffer from an uber-competitive internal environment which can be detrimental to team cooperation.
This may obviously change, person to person, but my managers are wonderful, kind and supportive. They make lots of effort to give great feedback. I've worked at different firms and I have felt the most comfortable at Landers.
The company's office is spacious and well organised. The office is mainly open plan, which encourages greater collaboration and interaction within the team. The dress code is formal, but not overly professional.
