Company Culture

You hardly saw anyone as you moved around a lot. Some of the firms that I worked for were really nice, others were not.

Support from management

You're told of a firm to be at and you go. If something occurs you're liable we're not part of any decisions only the outcomes

Teamwork

You work alone most of the time. It was rare when I would work with another coworker. Only when we have a really big firm with a big project and those instances weren't often.

Freedom to work independently

The work load was fair, but sometimes when others slacked off or put off doing their job they would send me to go clear away the backlog

Internal Communication

You were told where to go each day and just had to report there and that was it.

Gender Equality

There was really no growth so everyone was treated the same.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Most of the workers there were older near retirement age.

Overall compensation for your work

The pay was ridiculous. It's really enough to pay rent not to really live.

Office / Work Environment

This was dependent on the firm. Some places had really great workspaces and others were ridiculous. Some places had you work in a little corner without even a desk.

Environmental Friendliness

Again this depended on the firm. Some treated you like a person and to other at other drums you were invisible.

Work-Life Balance

I made sure to leave when I was supposed to as this job after awhile really did not make you want to do anything else

Company Image

When I did work with others they would say that they stayed because it was convenient and that they had nothing else to do because they had retired. Others would tell me to not stay long or get comfortable and that if they had it to do again they wouldn't have stayed so long

Job Security

If you're food, which is hard not to be you can be there forever and then have nothing to show for it.

Handicapped Accessibility

This was dependent on the firms and they had access to accomodate all

Workplace Safety

Yes the company provided training and shadowing a veteran worker, which helps you learn the trade quicker.

Challenging Work

The work was pretty easy not at all challenging

Inclusive / Diverse

Not really a lot of diversity. I was the youngest person in the whole company.

Suggestions for improvement

  • They need to realize that their workers are the whole business and not be so stingy with their profits.

What I like about the company

I liked being able to go to a variety of law firms all over New York City.

What I dislike about the company

I disliked the pay, the disregard of the work you were doing. No matter how pleased a client was with your work and increased the frequency which you visited their firm which means more money for the company, your compensation wouldn't even pay for two rides on the subway
