Schwegman is committed to creating a work environment with room for growth, a dynamic workplace, family-friendly hours, and a casual environment. Schwegman is a firm that fosters creativity and an incentive to work hard and have fun.
Unlike most firms where attorneys rule the roost and staff is at a different level status wise, Schwegman has a “flat” management style. We strive to treat every employee with respect, and with the freedom to do the best job they can.

Since 1993 Schwegman has endeavored to find talented people and then to keep them by treating them with respect and giving them the opportunity to grow in their job. Vicky Hawes served as Executive Director of the firm from its early days until February 2020. Her sincere appreciation for people set the tone at the firm. She worked with the Board to find new ways to make Schwegman a better place, whether it was with unusual twists on traditional benefits (such as no limit on sick days), surprise benefits (such as “It’s the first nice day after a long winter so take half a day off and go enjoy the weather’) or off-the-wall benefits (such as shorts being okay to wear in the summer, having staff compete in paint ball, tour of the Mill City district on Segways, or a day at the spa). With Bob Brace as the firm’s new Executive Director, the tradition of respect and opportunity continues.
