Industry Type: Legal
The legal industry creates a demanding and intense, deadline-driven environment. Nevertheless, the culture of law firm Wright, Lindsey & Jennings aims to be encouraging, cooperative and friendly.
Mentorship and peer collaboration ensure an open environment where management is accessible. Flexible work schedules, open door policies, complimentary parking, paid days off for birthdays, longevity incentives and dedication to gender diversity and work/life balance are part of the firm’s positive environment.
In addition to the 50-cents-per-dollar 401(k) match (up to 6 percent) and profit sharing, the firm has experts on Medicare, financial planning and retirement come in to educate employees.
Paid time off is extended for volunteer opportunities, while community walks, a softball team, the Fitbits for Move campaign, participation in the Blue and You Challenge and lunch-and-learn opportunities contribute to employees’ overall health and wellness.
The firm will sometimes close early, with pay, to get a head start on the weekend, and employees mingle and bond through ice cream socials, pot lucks, birthday celebrations, an annual cookout and holiday parties. Fresh fruit at the first of every month promotes good health.
For over a century, Wright, Lindsey & Jennings has built a reputation for excellence in ability, service and professionalism as one of the premier law firms in Arkansas. The needs of clients often supersede individual career trajectories, but as a result of the firm’s culture, professionals at every level grow and thrive, build stronger relationships with each other and achieve continued success and positive results for clients.
