Where Do I Get A Lifeboat?

Quite frankly brother/sister – you’ll have to make your own. Don’t expect management to provide them. Don’t expect there to be a seat for you and yours.

But don’t despair. That’s why this site is here. We’ll all help you create a lifeboat. I’ve already had to do it once before when I was at Brobeck. And that experience has taught me the questions to ask, what doesn’t smell right when everyone tells me it smells like honeysuckle, and how to make management hold up their end of their commitment. It is very well and nice to say in all your marketing materials about the great work environment and how everyone is “like family” but until something like this happens, I expect that family to be the Mansons or the Borgias.

Here’s how you can contribute and how you can get help – it’s a two way street:

– if you have ANY job leads, even ones not in your field, even ones not involving law firms, please submit them using the email link listed in the Contact Us section;

– don’t let anyone tell you it is disloyal or disrespectful to speak up about what is happening at Heller Ehrman – this is the same mentality that questions a person’s patriotism because they exercise their freedom of speech and question the practices of their government;

– keep checking in here for developments with what we hope to be reliable information, not idle gossip or sleazy blog attacks.

- Don't be a dill weed.

- Treat other people the way you want to be treated.

- Ladies and children first.

- This is a rescue, not a bitch session.

- Help don't harm.

- Save the snarks for the attorneys and Above The Law.

Heller Highwater is not:

- a place to practice viscious and vindictive "whisper down the lane" rumour-mongering;

- a place to bad mouth co-workers;

- a place for diatribes against specific people or specific incidents;

- a place to heap pity on poor Heller Ehrman staff by outsiders;

- a place that discriminates or sets margins noting who is outside and who is inside - we even welcome supportive Heller Ehrman attorneys!;

- meant to further the demise of Heller Ehrman, LLP.

Heller Highwater is:

- a place for support, a place of empowerment, a place of passion;

- a place to learn about job leads, resume preparation, skill building, training, new opportunities, and how to succeed in a new workplace;

- a place to keep up on the latest news as to how Heller Ehrman management intends to treat its support staff as it winds down its operations - will it be every woman for herself? or will it be "let me hold the door for you and is there anything else I can do for you"?

- a place of refuge.

Note: in no way, shape or form is Heller Highwater sanctioned, supported or even recognized, (but it is very likely monitored) by the management of Heller Erhman, LLP. The opinions represented here and on each and every page of Heller Highwater do not constitute the opinions of Heller Ehrman, LLP or its shareholders or its management.
