The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
It’s wonderful to see a successful law firm recognized for its commitment to the staff, going above and beyond the call of duty to “recruit and retain the best and brightest.” McDonald Carano Wilson, with offices in Reno and Las Vegas, Nevada, has been named by Nevada Business Magazine as one of the “Best Companies to Work For” – and the glowing endorsement by its employees says it all:
The firm offers education assistance, fully-funded healthcare and a generous profit-sharing program for its employees. Each of the 100 employees are encouraged to collaborate and help each other. The firm hasn’t had to lay anyone off because of the recession and has made it a goal to keep the quality employees they already have.
Everyone at the company cares for each other and rallies around employees with emergencies or other crisis’.
“I have worked for McDonald Carano Wilson for 28 years,” said Ginny Brownell, a legal secretary at the firm. “During that time, they have shared in the good times, supported us in the bad times and always made every employee feel valuable and valued.”
“Many companies say they are like a family, but McDonald Carano Wilson lives that way,” adds Holly Mitchell, another legal secretary with the firm.
