"Legal Assistant to a Partner"

Former Employee - Reviewed on February 08, 2019

Management needs to take control of this situation as you are fully aware of this attorney's actions as well as the numerous secretaries she has gone through

Pros : The only friendly staff members where in the mailroom! When you are a new employee you would think people would offer to help you with certain things, not here!
Cons : The attorney I interviewed with gave me the job on the spot and fired her secretary that same day! She did nothing but criticize her secretary during the interview. I should have known at that point not to accept the position. This firm has a job posting every month and I am sure it is for the same attorney/partner. I went to Personnel about her and was told to just try and get along with her. I believe maybe the woman in management was scared of her. Someone should stop this attorney from having a secretary because she doesn't deserve one! I started the very next day after the interview. I came into a mess of secretarial desk. I even worked Saturday in my first week only to be let go not even 2 weeks later! I feel I should warn everyone but beware of Heather Eichenbaum! She is pure evil! God help you if you start working with her because it definitely won't last! Don't even waste your time! She is absolutely the worst! I have over 30 years of legal assistance experience and am fully capable of doing my duties as a legal assistant but there is no dealing with this woman.
