Poor salary, neglectful treatment of agency staff, rude managerial staff. Disrespectful
Legal Assistant (Former Employee) – Cardiff, Cardiff – 6 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!
Pay, agency staffing, lack of promotions, disrespectful bonus policy, some rude managers
