Company Culture

Poor. Managing partners are god on high and nobody dares to contradict them.

Support from management

Very poor. The IT systems, especially software applications in general are very out of date and poor quality. Since maintaining them is almost impossible management occasionally offers up a sacrificial lamb to the higher ups, because they don't have any way of fixing the system at large.

Teamwork

Most of the team is OK. The truly great ones have left, the truly bad ones are fired, what's left is the middle. Won't rock the boat, but getting other teams to do stuff is pretty hard. CYA is life at FBD.

Freedom to work independently

some IT people can WFH one day a week. You will be micro managed however, so it's not great.

Internal Communication

Terrible. Nearly all communication is based around CYA.

Gender Equality

Seemed ok to me.

Attitude towards older colleagues

No issues here.

Career Development

Training is "offered" but in my experience the budget dries up before even half the people can get anything approved.

Overall compensation for your work

Points for decent pay here. The non monetary benefits are meh, but the pay is actually OK.

Office / Work Environment

not openly hostile or anything, but it's pretty bad. Nobody wants to get involved where they don't have to.

Environmental Friendliness

Average.

Work-Life Balance

Beyond horrible. If you are in IT, you are on-call 24/7/365. Maybe not on paper, but in practice you sure are. Life events matter not, and every problem is a 5-alarm fire, no exceptions for sanity or reality.

Company Image

It's a lawfirm

Job Security

Firing people to make a statement to management that they are doing something about systemic issues is the norm here. If you aren't lawyer, watch your back.

Handicapped Accessibility

Seemed fine to me, but I don't use it so I probably don't know what to actually look for.

Workplace Safety

It's a law office, nothing too dangerous or out of place.

Challenging Work

If keeping 20 year old software running in a "modern" environment is your idea of challenging, sure, it is that.

Inclusive / Diverse

They actually do pretty well here. Lots of women and minority hires. Not a boys club, at least in the lower levels.

Suggestions for improvement

  • People are burned out, and the current situation is untenable.

What I like about the company

The pay was good.

What I dislike about the company

IT has no say in how things are run, and what applications are purchased and used. Out of date, deprecated, and plain unsafe software is in use and you are expected to "make it work" no matter what. Information Security is not taken seriously, and saving face before the partners is paramount.

Teamwork

So much Team work that you can hear a pin drop. Of the entire Team that was there to interrogate/hire me, only 2 were left by the time 1/2 the year was over...and 1/2 of those have only been there for less than a year too, LOL!

Gender Equality

White Team members were always late or leaving early or working triple time pay....sand baggers?

Attitude towards older colleagues

They think it's a competition among teammates. Hardly say hi in the morning.

Inclusive / Diverse

In my 1 year of experience there, in them inter-department and branch weekly/monthly meetings - in a room of over 50 there was just me. 1 minority.

If I'm really lucky there might be another minority.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Hire more men for middle management positions! Hire more minorities!

What I like about the company

Neutral, Work atmosphere is below neutral

Teamwork

Individualists who are too scare they might lose their jobs if they help out their coworkers

Gender Equality

I was hire for about the same salary as some white person with less experience. Of course I asked them!

Environmental Friendliness

I was sick and in the hospital for 3 days and out the week and when i got back to work no one even asked where I have been or how I was doing.

Work-Life Balance

I was sick and in the hospital for 3 days and out the week and when i got back to work no one even asked where I have been or how I was doing.

Job Security

People on the team there did not last long. The group that hired me (6) only 3 remained. Then the next lay off with the new 3, making 6 - only 3 remained with only 2 of the originals remaining plus 1 of the new one.

Inclusive / Diverse

Out of the 50 or so people there I was the only one of stand out minority in the group.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More men in lower leadership roles and definitely more minorities

What I dislike about the company

Mostly female
