Review:

"Difficult place to work is putting it mildly."

Former Employee - Reviewed on September 04, 2020

Rethink your business model. No wonder you had to lay people off. Overhaul your pathetic, abusive "team leads" who make it so difficult they quit from their abuse in a matter of weeks not months.

Pros : Nothing.
Cons : I couldn't say it better than a 2017 former employee review: "chronic disorganization & overwork; abusive management practices - favoritism, laziness behind 'closed doors', scapegoating, 'voluntary' over-time with no pay, blatant unfairness, short-sighted problem-solving, no opportunity to advance. workplace culture is anxiety-riddled legal factory with a tendency to justified paranoia, back-biting & self-aggrandizement among deified members of staff." Nothing has changed since 2017. Also poor compensation
Approve of the CEO[?] : Yes
Recommend this employer to a friend? : Yes
Business outlook for the next 6 months? : up
Current or former employee? : Former Employee
Last Year at Employer : 2020
Job type : Full time

LawCrossing has the most listings of any job board I have used. It's actually a great site. The website had a lot of detail. It’s nice that you don't have to go through a recruiter if you don't want to. You can actually contact the law firm directly for the positions listed. LawCrossing had a ton of great features.
