Suggestions for improvement

What I like about the company

The attorney that I directly work for is great, he's very supportive, understanding and acknowledges the work that you do. The team I work with is great and has a good chemistry too. Overall the rest of the staff is friendly and attorneys are too. The building I work in is historic and beautiful so it doesn't have a typical office feel. The firm hosts/participates in about 3 community/volunteer events throughout the year that I like to participate in.....we have a great holiday party each year....anytime someone is getting married or is having a baby, the firm will throw a big shower for them at the office.

What I dislike about the company

My particular work space is extremely cramped and small (compared to others) and it makes it difficult to work in and be comfortable in....the biggest issue for me is that I have almost 10 yrs experience as a paralegal and I'm paid less than other paralegals in the same demographic and my caseload/ duties are more than the average paralegal....healthcare for dependents is paid out of pocket and it would be a huge financial help if they were covered by the company....I also feel we need more fun work events since we all work hard and our work is exhausting....parking isn't available at my office and you're forced to park in parking garages which cost almost $300 a month, which is a huge expense, some type of parking allowance would be great like other companies have.
