5.Current Employee, less than 1 yearGood Immigration CompanySenior Paralegal I in Dallas, TXRecommendProsSophisticated case management software. Company tries to care for its employees. Balanced workload. Casual. Good training. The senior associate I work for is head and shoulders the most competent immigration attorney I have worked with and will ever work with as he is several levels above my previous attorneys. Salary way above its competitors.ConsIf you're not a fan of woke companies, may want to look elsewhere.
Respond and respect your clients.
They don’t respond your messages. They don’t give you respect. They are unprofessional.
Continue to show employees how they are valued.
Great culture that inspires excellence and supports employee growth
High volume can be stressful
Get it together and have a heart. Quit expecting people to worship the ground associate attorneys walk on. Also the free bagels on Thursdays are nice but come on.
Your coworkers who are working in the trenches with you are genuinely good people and look out for each other.
Associate attorneys lack managerial training and are only focused on the number of cases done per day regardless of how many cases (160+) you are working on and how burnt out you are becoming.
Training is mediocre at best, obviously it makes it appear a great place to work.
A word of guidance to anyone considering this position: if they’re hiring in December you will get thrown in at their most busy time of year and likely be let go after it.
Most lawyers who are willing to work hard will succeed in this job. There is a lot to like about working here.
If you already wanted to represent business interests, this job will work well for you. You will forge important personal connections and deliver victories to your clients.
The firm has had some high profile losses in recent years. Some prominent attorneys have left or resigned.
