    I worked at Allmand Law Firm full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Learned so much about bankruptcy law.
    Met amazing people that are going through a very tough time and helped them get through it.

    Cons

    Poor pay for the extremely long hours!
    There were many ethical violations. The firm does not care for their clients they undoubtedly only want their money.
    This is not a team environment even though non management employees are great.
    No leadership.
    No morale.
    Not a place for personal growth.
    There is no proper training.
    Management does not have a clue on what they are doing.
    Incredibly mismanaged firm from lack of communication and proper training.
    Keeping your job certainly depends on how much management likes you.
    The old technology is irritably slow, unreliable, and wastes so much time trying to deal with important lost and corrupted documents even for tech savvy individuals.
    Lack of adequate software programs to receive client payments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value/Respect your employees give them the proper training and tools that are needed to do their jobs correctly and efficiently. Realize that mistakes are being made not because an employee does not know what they are doing, but because of the old technology. Upgrade instead of just trying to work around it.
    Work as a team to eliminate poor work and misunderstandings to client cases.

    Pros

    You get exposed to bankruptcy law.

    Cons

    Ethical violations. Horrible Management. Extremely long hours and poor pay. They don't train you properly and are very condescending. They are by no means concerned with helping the client, often placing them in the wrong chapter of bankruptcy or leaving them with a payment they knowingly can't afford. Stay away, do not quit the job you have to enter this horrid work environment.

    I worked at Allmand Law Firm

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Company paid health insurance. Generous vacation time but you are generally not given the opportunity to use it.

    Cons

    Management is clueless and the company is run solely on personality. They do not in any way care about their clients and are only concerned with nickel and diming clients. Never seen such a mismanaged firm with zero morale. Non management employees are great but definitely not a team atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and realize until you start to value your employees as the most important element to success you will continue to have a 120% plus turnover rate.
