  • I don't believe more than one or two people could possibly be posting about this with such persistence and venom.
    It doesn't take a genius to see that someone is campaigning here - a competitor by the look of it.

  • SJB is learning the hard way that a hyperactive marketing department is a poor substitute for legal and commercial excellence.

  • SJ's main problem is rather the same as News Corp's. The firm was built by certain key partners who brought with them a 'certain' culture. The firm needs these senior people to leave so a renewal of the firm's direction and culture can take place - just as happens in MC and other leading firms. But, as is so often the case in smaller firms the 'founders' would rather take the ship down with them, shouting from the bridge: 'This is my firm, I built it......' without noticing the world has moved on.

  • While some of the comments here have varying degrees of validity to them, I would take issue with the underlying them that SJB is a horrible place to work. Perhaps the comments are coming from people who got treated badly in the downturn. Fair enough. Those people probably have the right to be pissed off with how the firm treated them (though I doubt it was any worse than how other firms acted). However, having worked there for nearly 4 years now, I can honestly say that it is a really nice working environment, with a pretty young, vibrant and fun employee base. Of course, as with any business, there are some people you'd rather not work with, but on the whole I think it is one of the best environments I have worked in.
