Horrible Company to Work For
Initially the company was okay to work for, however, very quickly I learnt you receive very little support from the Managing Paralegals, who show very little empathy towards you learning the job role, even if you are within your probation and still learning. The Managing Paralegals have no prior managing people experience and quite frankly treat you like something off the bottom of their shoes. One particular Managing Paralegal will have a go at you for no reason especially if they have had a bad time at home, not very professional. The firm work you very hard with almost no encouragement. In this firm your face certainly has to fit! A horrible office environment, no one talks to each other, heads are down all day, the moment you do look up and talk to someone, it is almost frowned upon. I sat at my desk for weeks with no work to do, no one cares, they are too busy trying to advance their own careers! A very corporate environment, which left me feeling very anxious to the point I felt I had no other option but to quit. I wouldn't recommend this law firm to anyone, they seem to have lost sight of how to look after their people, instead they are all about the bottom line. There won't be a bottom line without people to carry out the work! I assume the new American partner has had a massive influence on how they now go about their business. A very disappointing experience.
