McGlinchey is pleased to announce that it has been named among the “Best Places to Work” by New Orleans CityBusiness for the second year in a row. McGlinchey received the “Bronze” award, placing the firm in the top three honorees in the “large company” category for businesses with more than 250 employees.
“We are so proud to be named a Best Place to Work again in 2022,” said Mag Bickford, Managing Attorney of McGlinchey’s New Orleans office. “At McGlinchey, we know that dollars are not the only thing that matters when employees choose a place to work. Especially in a vibrant community like New Orleans, we strive to create a culture where each employee feels comfortable and supported to do their best work. It is wonderful to see that reflected in our inclusion on this list.”
McGlinchey was recognized among the “2023 Best Law Firms for Women” by Firsthand’s Vault Survey and received the Leadership Counsel on Legal Diversity (LCLD)’s highest honor, the “Compass Award,” as well as its “Top Performer” recognition, in 2022.
“McGlinchey’s roots are in New Orleans; it is our first office, and it is also our largest. We have invested heavily in our firm culture in recent years, and I take great pride in knowing that so many of our employees enjoy coming to work every day,” said Michael Ferachi, McGlinchey’s Managing Member.
Founded in 1974, McGlinchey’s New Orleans office is home to more than 100 attorneys and administrative professionals, as well as the core of the firm’s business operations, including human resources and benefits, recruiting and talent acquisition, marketing and business development, IT, accounting, library services, and many members of the Senior Administration team. It was the first of the firm’s 17 offices nationwide.
To be included on the “Best Places to Work” list, companies participate in a two-part nominations process. Part one involves providing detailed workforce data such as salaries, benefits, retention levels, and employee advancement. Part two involves an anonymous survey of company employees to measure workplace culture. Selection to the list is based primarily on employee participation and feedback gathered in part two.
