We have invested in the latest technology: the computer system was replaced in 2009 and 2010 and the telephone system was upgraded to VoIP in 2010. A Disaster Recovery system is in place and is routinely tested which provides for continuance of email, document management and litigation support. All of our offices are connected via a high speed Layer 2 network with redundant connections to the Internet.
Many employees have been with the Firm for ten years or more; some over twenty years. We search for the right applicants when the need arises but often promote from within the Firm or relocate staff.
We offer ongoing training for all staff on an as-need basis. For example, secretaries are trained to work with MS Word, iManage Worksite, Power Point, Excel and many more applications.
Our employment and benefits packages are competitive by location and include: annual reviews, discretionary year-end bonuses, medical, dental, life and disability insurance, cafeteria, 401K and profit sharing plans, parking or transportation allowances, paid holidays, employee leave, and Employee-of-the-Year and Ten-Year Service Awards.
Susman Godfrey's policy is to provide equal employment opportunity to all employees and job applicants. This means we consider all aspects of your employment, including recruitment, hiring, promotion, compensation, and professional development, on the basis of experience, talent, qualifications, job performance, and the Firm's needs. We do not discriminate against anyone on the basis of ethnicity, color, religion, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, veteran status, or any other factor that violates governing federal, state, or municipal laws.
"Susman Godfrey is a wonderful place to work. I spend my days working on a variety of different cases in many different jurisdictions. No matter what the case, though, there is one constant theme — the strive for excellence. SG attorneys and staff are the best and the brightest in the business. All SG employees are expected to give their utmost at all times and share their ideas in order to make the case reach conclusion in the most efficient and expedient fashion. It makes me proud to say I work here".
— Jeff McLaren, Paralegal
"One thing about Susman Godfrey is that employees rarely leave. I have worked here for 8-1/2 years and I am one of the newcomers. Working as an SG paralegal is challenging and interesting. We are assigned to a case in its early stages, participating in meetings and conference calls which increases our familiarity with the case and optimizes our function. The SG attorneys' professionalism and skill, especially in the courtroom is amazing and makes me feel proud to work for a first rate law firm."
— Jan Cobden, Paralegal
