"Paralegal/Legal Assistant"

Former Employee Paralegal in Chiago Loop City, - Reviewed on December 07, 2017

Close and reopen as Boyle & Associates after firing or buying out Joy Feinberg. Janet Boyle is great. Joy Feinberg is THE problem with this firm. Money obviously doesn't buy class or make you a good person. Joy, I hope you learn to treat people like human beings instead of dogs, manage your moods and temper tantrums because you do act like a spoiled child. I treat my dog better than you treated me. Joy, you are a POS and need to get some professional help. But you are in denial. I will pray for you that you gain a conscience because you have none.

Pros : The partner Janet Boyle is a very nice person and is very pleasant. Legal Assistant Jackie and the receptionist are very nice as well.
Cons : Almost everything I could say about my experience at this firm is negative. Other than the nice people stated above in Best of the Firm, I have nothing but bad to say. This is all women firm and if you ever wondered if that could be a problem, the answer is yes. This is the biggest bunch of bitches I have ever met in my life. In particularJoy Feinberg. I quit after less than a month. I wanted to quit after a day. Never worked for a bigger bitch in my life. Treats paralegal like whipping post and file clerk, and she is abusive and throws temper tantrums constantly and is so moody. Plus you must be a mind reader and psychic. If you are considering working here think again, I quit and have a great job paying more in a place where I am treasured and respected for my hard work ethic and experience as a 30+ year paralegal. This was the worst job ever. I would rather eat broken glass then work at this firm. I cried every day when I left. Within a week of starting there I immediately starting looking for another position. If you want to be happy at your job, don't work here. They are miserable bitches, except for Jackie , receptionist and Janet Boyle. I actually feel sorry for Joy Feinberg because anyone that makes that kind of money and can treat people that horribly is truly a terrible person. I hope she gets what she dishes out. Worst attorney I every worked for. Joy Feinberg is the "C" word. Plain and simple, head my warning. One of the associates who worked with Joy knew I was going to leave before I gave my notice and ratted me out. What she didn't tell Joy was that behind Joy's back she would flip off Joy, give her the double bird, two handed, middle fingers to Joy behind her back because she couldn't stand her either, but the associate is a brown nose and back stabber so she fits right in over there. Just wish that associate got what she deserved, which would be fired because she is a total bitch as well. At my new job EVERYONE is nice, respectful, and fun to work with and my paralegal skills are truly utilized everyday. If you like being a whipping post, being verbally and mentally abused then work here, for Joy. My advice, work anywhere except here.
