The law firm ranked 12th in the large-company (250+ employees) category, and is the highest-ranked Florida-based company in the category.
Florida Trend’s ‘Best companies’ honor is a rigorous competition and many companies seek this honor.
Gunster’s competitive salaries, benefits and bonuses, staff appreciation efforts and wellness programs all contribute to the firm’s reputation as a top employer. The average length of employment is 11 years, and many employees spend their entire careers at Gunster.
“We all believe that Gunster is a great law firm and a great place to work,” says Bill Perry, the firm’s managing shareholder.
“It is our collaboration and respect of one another, as well as our ‘one-firm’ mentality that distinguishes Gunster from other law firms. I want to thank all our employees who, every day, take the steps necessary to ensure our firm achieves its mission of being the best law firm in Florida.”
Gunster's growth story was recently profiled in South Florida Business & Wealth, as well as the Jacksonville Daily Record.
The annual competition identifies and recognizes Florida’s best employers in small, medium and large categories. It was created by Florida Trend magazine and is managed by the Best Companies Group. Honorees were selected after a thorough, two-step process involving an evaluation of the workplace, its policies, practices, philosophies and demographics – in addition to a random and confidential survey of company employees designed to measure their engagement and satisfaction.
Gunster was previously recognized on the Florida Trend "Best companies to work for" list from 2009 to 2012.
