Poor salary, neglectful treatment of agency staff, rude managerial staff. Disrespectful
Legal Assistant (Former Employee) –  Cardiff, Cardiff6 July 2019
The entire organisation is dependent on Legal Assistant staff who are entirely hired from recruitment agencies at £9 per hour. The other staff in the organisation are lovely but clearly victims of a bad system. Other departments may be run better but generally there seems to be mismanagement and lack of intelligent oversight.

Overtime is available and common to improve pay, but it is not worthwhile. I have known staff with years of experience denied promotions, career progression, or bonuses, largely because agent staff are treated as inferior. Those who attempt to develop themselves or take on challenges are frowned upon for overstepping the boundaries.

Managers are generally ok but they are affected by a few negative managers who make the organisation worse than it ought to be. The company shld start giving staff the salaries, job security, and respect that they as human beings deserve. Only then will they solve their horrendous staff turnover rate which continues to cost the business time and money. If only their clients knew how badly run the staffing is!
Pros
Good office location
Cons
Pay, agency staffing, lack of promotions, disrespectful bonus policy, some rude managers

Only worked for the company a short time, overall it's far from a bad place to work.
Administrator (Current Employee) –  Nottingham24 June 2019
The workplace culture is something the company pride themselves on and they certainly aim to provide a pleasant working environment for everyone.

It's certainly a case of embracing the fast paced and ever evolving working practices.

Great people
Legal Assistant (Current Employee) –  Cardiff, Cardiff28 May 2019
Workload is not for everyone. You do work with big name clients. Most enjoyable part of the job was working with a great team. Hardest part of the job was the hours to ensure the workload was managed.

Associate (Current Employee) –  Manchester, Greater Manchester27 April 2019
Senior management are very concerned with making sure that people can turn up to work as their whole, true selves. Colleagues have plenty of CSR opportunities outside of their day to day roles.

Work you hard but lovely people
Associate Solicitor (Former Employee) –  Manchester, Greater Manchester8 April 2018
The most enjoyable part of my job was the access to large and important clients on a daily basis. The lease enjoyable part was the idea that as clients come first, you should drop outside work plans at the drop of the hat.
