Suggestions for improvement

  • I would feel that with our boss (the attorney) coming in to the office more often to monitor it would greatly improve the way the employees work.

What I like about the company

The positive experiences about my company are that everyone that works here is like a family. We have all learned to get along and if there is anything one of us need from another that person will never hesitate to help.

What I dislike about the company

The parts of my company that i disapprove of are that since this is like a family orientated office some people tend to take advantage and use that to their advantage at times.

What I like about the company

Everything!! The firm is busy, you are never watching the clock, your day files by. The work is challenging and rewarding. Even though the firm has a lot of employees, the environment is warm and friendly, not cold and sterile. Our boss is encouraging, pleasant, and a joy to work for. I wouldn't want to work anywhere else.

What I dislike about the company

No Complaints!

What I like about the company

Sobo & Sobo provides an exciting and enriching work environment. Although the firm has experienced significant growth, it continues to maintain a family atmosphere. There is always someone available to lend a helping hand around the office. There is an open door policy which facilitates interactions between all levels of employees, from the most senior attorneys to the newest support staff. Firm-wide events are a common occurrence, and it is not out of the ordinary for a pot luck lunch to be planned for birthdays, bridal showers, baby showers, and many other exciting events. New employees are given a tremendous amount of support and training to best learn their job. It is easy to move up within the firm if you take advantage of the opportunities presented to you. Employees are expected to consider clients happiness as one of their main priorities and in turn, the firm does everything possible to keep employees happy. If you are looking for a place where you will be given exciting and challenging opportunities and still enjoy a family atmosphere, Sobo & Sobo is the place for you!

Internal Communication

Unfortunately, no matter how hard you work, they don't appreciate it. Compensation is not based on skill, experience or dedication. Even with a high level degree, you will barely make more than minimum wage, even if you put in 40+ hours per week. Your expected to arrive early, stay late, and work weekends. However, no appreciation is show. It's basically a popularity contest. If one attorney doesn't like you or feels threatened by what you have to offer, she will stop at nothing to make sure you feel unwelcomed and make it her mission to see that you don't stick around.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Value your employees! Open your eyes to they poison in your office that's disguised as a professional woman! Don't dismiss employee grievances and complaints! Work with your employees not against them! Don't set your employees up for failure.

What I like about the company

They aren't opposed to hiring employees with little to no experience. They understand that in order to gain the experience most employers seek, someone has to give you a shot so you can gain the experience.

What I dislike about the company

They don't make their employees feel valued. They expect highly educated college graduates to work round the clock for almost minimum wake.
