Work Experience Student (Former Employee) –  Birmingham19 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.

Very busy and pressurised role

Junior Paralegal Insurance (Former Employee) –  Preston18 September 2017
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

Good employer. Work remedial
Paralegal (Former Employee) –  Manchester, Greater Manchester17 August 2017
Start about 15mins early to get a good head start. Recover costs of repairs and complete Claims Forms to issue proceedings against the Defendant.

How solicitors work. Professionalism.

Laissez faire.

Young. Straight from law school. Hadn't had any real life experiences. Formal work attire however you could choose to where more relaxed clothing.

Too much tedious paperwork and not being on the phones negotiating claims and settling them as a claims handler would do.

Getting to know how solicitors operate.
Pros
The experience gained
Cons
The sheer amount of tedious paperwork

Facilities Support (Current Employee) –  Preston, Lancashire10 June 2017
Can be very challeging at times, and hard work.
sometimes can feel like there is a lot of presure to get things done.

The most enjoyable part of the job are the people that i deal with helping them to do there own role within the company, by offering the support that i can.

Administration Assistant (Former Employee) –  Manchester, Greater Manchester1 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 Manchester21 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.
Pros
City Centre offices
Cons
Salary, Workload
