Why It’s Great to Work Here: “Most big law firms have a rigid one-size-fits-all approach to productivity goals that requires attorneys to shape their lifestyle to the firm’s needs. PLG offers a literal ‘sliding scale’ approach that enables attorneys to choose a level of productivity that suits their unique personal needs and translates to a better quality of life.”—Gregory Braker, partner
Cool Perks: Tasting events, book clubs, happy hours and virtual coffee meetings.
Work-Life Balance: “PLG allows people to work at home or in the office as much as they’d like. Working primarily from home has changed my life. I get two or three hours of my life and family time back each day by not commuting, and I save more than $10,000 per year in commuting costs.” —Braker
Office Culture: From online coffee chats to IRL lunches, management offers a monthly mix of social opportunities.
