"There's a true camaraderie, and it's always been respected as a great place to work," says Cathy Benton in the article "Alston & Bird discovers the laws of low turnover." Cathy describes the benefits and flexibility the firm provides its lawyers and staff in order to help them maintain the "work-life balance," benefits including a 24-hour fitness center, concierge services, on-site massages, employee dining room and a subsidized on-site child-care facility.
The article includes comments made by Mary Benton
and a photo of Mary playing with her 3-year-old son at the child-care facility. Karol Mason
is quoted as well, saying she uses the fitness center more than any other perk and enjoys having her laptop and BlackBerry handy when she travels.
Alston & Bird's turnover firm-wide was a mere 7 percent in 2003.Click here
