Review:

"One of the most toxic environments out there"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 02, 2020

Hire a real HR and develop a business strategy that will make the firm have a low turn over rate.

Pros : Good place to work to gain some experience because they hire even if you have little to no experience. This is useful to move up and apply at a better law firm.
Cons : The hire fresh out from college for assistant/paralegals positions yet expect you to know everything. God forbid you ask a question. They will make you feel incompetent and unintelligent. They constantly remind you that people in this firm don't last long and how easily replacable you are. Pay is below market standards. You are expected to work late and come in every Saturday due to their 200 hour per month bill requirement. They don't have a real HR team and serious issues such as sexual harassment accusations are taken lightly.
