Micromanaged down to "why are you getting up from your desk?" when you want to grab a coffee from the kitchen.

Gender Equality

Received sexist remarks from partners when doing tasks and also when hired re: my salary.

Absolutely none.

There are a few people here that are nice but no one stays long.

Company Culture

Found that there was not much recognition for tasks completed by each employee. Trust was low within teams as many employees felt that the work was not distributed evenly or priorities were improperly ranked. Generally the departments were all very much like a clique and did not work amongst each other. Many teams did not seem to get along with the other employees on their teams.

Support from management

Managers are not very well trained or really have experience managing other employees. They do not set realistic or clear goals, and do not welcome alternative ideas or solutions to problems. Any sort of "out-of-the-box" idea is viewed as a waste of time and often a sign of insubordination. General decisions are often referred to higher-ups that generally don't have time to deal with situations and therefore leave it to the inexperienced managers. A lot of misdirection and lack of communication.

Teamwork

Colleagues generally work individually and do not focus too much on teamwork. The tasks are doled out to each employee and there isn't often any communication about who is where on each task in regards to progress. Questions about how to complete tasks are not welcomed and are usually best answered by people outside of your team.

Freedom to work independently

Employees ideas are not very welcomed and are required to do the tasks given to them in the manner instructed by their supervisor. There is a lot of work to be done and individual teams are often understaffed creating an overload of work for each employee within the team.

Internal Communication

Generally employees are expected to not deviate from their assigned tasks, and when communication was needed as in with HR or head supervisors, the responses were slow and not very informative. On the other hand, communication between similarly ranking employees was too much and often felt like immediate supervisors and low level managers were keeping a constant watch on completion of tasks and performance to the employee's detriment.

Gender Equality

There was not much of an issue with women versus men at this company- rather a lack of equality could be found among each employee level. The supervisors and low level managers made sure that the "lower" employees knew that they had less authority and power and treated them as such, regardless of skill or knowledge level of the employee.

Attitude towards older colleagues

The company seemed to not have any issue with hiring a wide range of age groups. Many of the older employees had been working there for decades and the rest of the employees seemed to be very green. The younger crowd of employees seemed to have a very high turnover rate.

Career Development

There is not much room for advancement at this company without acquiring more degrees. Training is basic and minimal and employees are expected to seek training on their own.

Overall compensation for your work

Benefits offered were very generous. Salary was low for knowledge and skill level. Raises are generally given every year, but are not large.

Office / Work Environment

The working conditions were not horrible, but the climate control was a constant problem. There was a large amount of chatter and constant distractions among the work areas which resulted in many employees resorting to wearing headphones for most of their work day. Computers were fairly well maintained, but any sort of upgrade and/or modification specific to the employee was not well-responded to. Lighting was poor, and the workspace was pretty cramped.

Environmental Friendliness

None of these were factors at this employer.

Work-Life Balance

Vacation days can be taken but are usually subject to approval, in which the supervisors take their own needs into account first before granting it. If something needed to be done the employees are expected to work long hours to complete the task, but are subject to needing approval for overtime hours first- which is also not given out easily. Flex time is not an option, and employees are expected to make up every minute that they miss, regardless of how it effects them. There certainly is a lot of pressure to complete work even if that scope falls outside of normal working hours.

Company Image

Opinion among employees differed- if they had a supervisor they liked and were content with their salary, they generally would not say too many negative things about the company. Many other employees often had gripes regarding their job duties, hours, and level of work, versus what they were being paid and how often they were given recognition for a job well done. Current employees still voice similar complaints. The atmosphere was generally negative.

Job Security

Extremely high turnover rate. Employees did not stay very long due to unhappiness with their positions. Due to low level of pay and challenge, employees were very easily replaceable. Employees were often terminated for very unorthodox reasons, or quit without much notice.

Handicapped Accessibility

There was an elevator in the building but not much easy accessibility for any disabled persons. The company does not offer to work with disabled employees and seems to view them as a hindrance.

Workplace Safety

The company provides very little safety training and posts the required material in common areas for employees to read on their own.

Challenging Work

Employees generally can be proud of their work accomplishments but this doesn't necessarily mean they should be expecting gratitude from bosses or supervisors. Often when challenging tasks are given to employees they are either expected to be completed in unreasonable amounts of time, or the tasks are very basic and can be completed by employees without much if any formal training. Spent a fair amount of time completing data entry despite the job description being quite different.

Inclusive / Diverse

There was not a large sense of diversity and as mentioned earlier many long term employees had formed social groups and did not welcome newcomers. The company did not promote diversity and did not welcome any ideas or solutions that were inconsistent with how the supervisors wanted things done.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Build a more positive and team driven atmosphere. Require employees to work with other employees outside of their teams, and encourage new ideas and solutions.

What I like about the company

The company has a good reputation in the legal community performance wise as a law firm, which is a nice thing to add to your resume.

What I dislike about the company

Almost everything- the employees, the supervisors, the workspace, the workload and responsibilities, and the general work environment and attitudes of the employees.
