of 5 stars
The firm provides meals and transportation after 7:00 pm.The document processing center is great.
Management is trying to run the firm like a stuffy white shoe New York firm, but with a blue collar salary and bonus. The firm does not value its associates as contributing members of the firm's success. Shareholders (Partners) have a general attitude that associates are expendable and easily replaceable.
The firm markets itself to incoming associates as a firm that pays a (near) market salary and that its lawyers bill less hours than the other big law firms, which is why it pays slightly less. Vedder serves middle market clients with a model of sheer quantity. The client's get a cheaper rate, but it comes out of the associates' pockets. The firm does not pay market salary and nearly half of its associates bill 1,900 hours for a significantly less bonus/salary than peer firms.

Vedder Price offers their employees with good medical insurance benefits.
It is not well organized and many of their employees are frustrated.
Look elsewhere. It is not what it seems at the time of interview. The role changes once hired.
