Featured Review

Current Employee - Paralegal

I have been working at Wilson Elser full-time for more than a year

Pros

The resources a large firm can offer

Cons

A dead-end position with no opportunities for advancement or promotion Work-life balance Low compensation Feeling like a number and not appreciated by management Lack of training and general... instruction on office procedures for new hires

Former Employee - Legal Assistant

I worked at Furman Kornfeld & Brennan full-time

Pros

You have the opportunity to learn a lot and get a good amount of experience.

Cons

The manager in the office has no idea how to actually manage . Attorneys gossip and promote drama within the office. At times it will seem like they want you to fail as an assistant. Everything is a... test. You don’t get credit for the work you do and the better worker you are the more responsibilities you get without a pay raise. Pay raises are given based on who they like the most. If you are close with the manager you will get a raise- your work ethic has nothing to do with your raise. The turn over rate is extremely high for assistants due to lack in training. Take the job if you are in need or money and/or experience.

Advice to Management

Try not to play favoritism with your support staff. Some workers put a lot of effort in and do not get the credit or pay raise when time comes. Try to treat everyone the same and please help stop the... spread of gossip. It creates a toxic workspace.
