Much Shelist has been named one of the Chicago Tribune’s Top Workplaces for the fifth consecutive year. This award publicly recognizes the most dynamic and supportive local companies to work for based on the results of an employee feedback survey that measures several aspects of an organization. Much Shelist was one of only three law firms to make the 2016 list. The firm received special recognition for encouraging workplace positivity, providing opportunities to do meaningful work, and fostering good inter-departmental cooperation. 

When asked why employees love their jobs at Much Shelist, one attorney responded, "The firm has always been supportive of my practice area and has encouraged me to excel in the law practice. The open, friendly atmosphere has always made me feel like the office is a second home." A member of the Much Shelist staff would recommend the firm as a place to work because "the people and culture are second to none." Another attorney noted, "There's a positive atmosphere here that is unusual in the world of law firms. I feel my ideas are seriously and constructively considered, even if they are not acted on. I don't think any employee can expect more than that. Our firm's encouragement to engage in the community is very impressive as well. I attribute the positive receptivity to excellent firm leadership, collegiality, and the high-quality people who work here from top to bottom." 

“It’s incredibly rewarding to be recognized as one of the best places and law firms to work for in Chicago for the fifth year in a row,” said Mitchell S. Roth, Managing Partner. “All of our employees work hard to maintain a culture that values sophisticated work, exceptional service for clients, and forward-thinking strategies."

The Top Workplaces award is based on the survey results of Workplace Dynamics LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including alignment, execution, and connection. When describing the winners, Doug Claffey, CEO of Workplace Dynamics said, "…to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live that culture every day-the employees."
