Management at Allens
- Average rating for Management, based on 28 reviews8.4 / 10
How accessible are managers and do they make good mentors? You may want to address internal communication, performance feedback or praise and recognition.
Performance feedback is good, there is a system whereby someone is always monitoring your performance. Communication of firm strategy and employee advancement is not clearly communicated.
Entry level, Melbourne
Very good internal communication and feedback.
Managers are generally approachable, positive feedback is regular and managers are always quick to pass on positive client feedback
Entry level, Sydney
Partners are very responsive, feedback provided is very good and I get good recognition for work well done.
Excellent dual mentoring role (two mentors per mentee)
Performance feedback is a big focus here. You will be told how you are progressing. You are also assigned a performance coach who is there to look after you and help your career progression, whatever it may be. Managers are generally friendly and good to work for.
The quality of managers seems to vary a great deal. My personal experience of seeing managers (partners/senior associates) interact with employees has been very good.
My particular manager is an excellent mentor. Other senior lawyers are likewise excellent at providing detailed and constructive feedback and recognition. The standard does, of course, vary to a certain extent from person to person.
The firm prides itself on transparency. We have training sessions that make us aware of firm roll outs of new initiatives and our career model. There is a structured process for our feedback praise and recognition as well an environment where feedback, praise and recognition is given organically.
Entry level, Melbourne
They are easily accessible and approachable. Generally very good at giving constructive and positive feedback.
