"I worked for Sidley Austin for over 11 years. The first 9 were great. There was a change in management in the home office, and that is when the tides turned. One person thought she knew how to do everything and no one else knew anything. You were either with her or you were not. Those who were not with her, got treated with disrespect and ostracism. It was like she was there to perform an exorcism on those who did not fall into the mold."

"I worked at Sidley for 12 years. Over the last three years, the IT group in the corporate office, Chicago, went down the drain as the respect they gave to the staff in the outer offices. The End Users Services Director in CH had a few choice staff and everybody else were toast in her eyes. This was not a way to run a department. You began to feel like you needed to be doing something different because you did not fit in her schema. The CIO even does not have a grip on the department's faults."
