It was a very happy working environment with a good team of hard working individuals who were very friendly and social. Was introduced to my work tasks one step at a time so that I was not overwhelmed with work I felt I was unsure with how to carry out.
Paralegal (Current Employee) – Leeds – 11 June 2018
This is not a good place to work. There are other firms out there who will give you real experience needed to grow professionally and personally, opportunities to progress and will pay you (relatively) well.
The culture is toxic. Only conformity is tolerated and ridicule (even from high up) comes from deviation. If you try to raise concerns to managers or HR you’re brushed off.
Effort is put into social events.
No acknowledgement of hard work, no real structure or guidance available (poor managers), no training, poor pay, bullying/manipulation comes from the top and all around, rumours of harassment in departments which no one does anything about, HR do not deal with concerns.
Work Experience Student (Former Employee) – Birmingham – 19 April 2018
I learned basic procedures of law and filled out the company workbook. Writing a report for the company website taught me research skills. Working in a large corporation gave me a taste of how big firms function.
File management support (Former Employee) – Liverpool – 23 January 2018
met some lovely people and pay is great! job security not so much, also worked here 3 months and didnt receive a desk or pc! bad communication from managers and quite a few fee earners who want to take their heads out of their own behinds.
Firm was a stong place and had good benefits for staff flexible working hours. The opportunity to progress was there but was quite difficult. Management at our office were difficult to work for and would push staff for work along with bullying and penalising staff if the face did not fit.
Comapny as a whole is good managers at preston office are not and any complaints will not be taken seriously
Administration Assistant (Former Employee) – Manchester, Greater Manchester – 1 June 2017
Cater to everyones needs, very accepting of all circumstances. Management are the best you could ask for in a company. Typical day at work is never boring, always lots to do and can always ask to go beyond what your job title tells you to do.
Credit Control (Current Employee) – Manchester, Greater Manchester – 21 April 2017
Poor staff retention has meant excessive workload for remaining team and for many years this hasn't seen any change or improvement. Subordinates are often doing work several career levels higher without being fairly recognised, promoted or paid fairly.
