Company Culture

Company culture does not exist here

Support from management

Some pretty good with communicating, but there are secrets kept that affect the flow of work and the people who actually do the work.

Teamwork

This company is divided into discrete sections with a specific set of tasks and an accepted/approved method of performing these tasks. The individual sections seem to work well within themselves and do not seem to have too much trouble keeping things running smoothly.

Freedom to work independently

No autonomy whatsoever. one's computer usage and time management are monitored daily.

Internal Communication

A support staff employee can expect to receive 20 or more emails every day, paralegals and attorneys many more. From speaking with other employees I discovered that many people just delete all emails.

Gender Equality

Yes and yes

Attitude towards older colleagues

Several highly respected senior attorneys are active members of the partnership.

Career Development

As far as staff goes, you are what you are - secretaries and file clerks rarely become attorneys.

Overall compensation for your work

Yes

Office / Work Environment

Dull. Monochromatic. Gray.

Environmental Friendliness

I'm just guessing here - there's an awful lot of paper around for a so-called paperless system.

Work-Life Balance

I was not aware of this issue.

Company Image

No

Job Security

My position was eliminated due to acquisition by larger firm and the resulting restructuring

Handicapped Accessibility

Yes and yes

Workplace Safety

Yes and yes

Challenging Work

Just repetitive processing and printing.

Inclusive / Diverse

I can't answer this - they appear to value the ability to sit down in front of a pc all day, every day, 5 days a week, 8 hours a day...forever. The office is very quiet; one feels isolated...

Suggestions for improvement

  • Relax a little - I know your finance people rule the organization, but you are still a service industry - show a little happiness. If you're not happy, get a different job.

What I like about the company

nothing

What I dislike about the company

pretty much everything - bunch of petty, humorless stuffed shirts

What I like about the company

Nice offices, competitive salaries.

What I dislike about the company

Too big, top heavy management style, few perks for administrative help, rigid, high turnover rate, not at all progressive or forward thinking as to what might improve work environment and keep employees from leaving, don't value good employees.
