    It's a job that pays bills

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Addison, TX

    ProsIt pays the bills, and nothing else really.

    ConsMicromanaged. So many Supervisors, Managers, Directors, Associate Directors who take all the credit from the rest. The workers aren't compensated for anything. Work holidays with no extra pay, no bonuses, good luck on a raise. Treated like dirt, constantly being watched.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCut upper management in half and give that salary to your employees. The work will be better as the environment will be better. Morale! Listen to your employees. Give them motivation and the work will speak for itself. Go around and get to know your employees. As a CEO or Partner how could you not take 30 minutes out of your year to shake all 500 employees hands and say Thanks! Ive seen them before, but I guarantee they don't know my name... because they dont care. Get to know your people.

    Perhaps one of the worst places I have ever worked. I literally became suicidal while working there

    Billing (Current Employee) Addison, TX

    ProsSalary was decent....though benefits were not. Comfortable office.

    ConsTotally unrealistic expectations, horrible supervisors and directors. Training is never available, there are NO manuals or standardized workflows for ANYTHING. No investment in employees through training. You are literally thrown to the wolves.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of useless mid-management, overpaid slave drivers. Also, reward good work and create more incentives. Good work was never recognized.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Horrible culture/environment

    Case Manager (Former Employee) Addison, TX

    ProsDecent pay and paid time off.

    ConsDisingenuous H.R. department, unapproachable management, unfriendly and cold coworkers. Overall, toxic and unhealthy workplace. Sadly, management does not care. Morale was nonexistent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEvery manager at BDFTE should immediately enroll in the Dale Carnegie course.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Attorney

    Attorney (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsWilling to hire Attorney right out of law school

    ConsSweat Shop mentality. No respect, foul mouth insecure partner who needed to belittle others to make herself feel important. Sr. Partner knew this but made excuses for this individual because partner in question went to trial often. It came to a head when this partner suffered a nervous breakdown at work (no one can be that insecure and petty without doing internal damage to her own soul) and BBWCDF were sanctioned for it's horrible practices.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn Professionalism and personal responsibility for mistakes made

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Law Firm of Last Resort

    Associate Attorney (Current Employee) Addison, TX

    ProsThe firm is willing to hire lawyers right out of law school. There is little work to be taken home in the evenings or on weekends. Much of the work is very routine. The billable hour requirement is reasonable.

    ConsThere is no discussion of partnership opportunity. It is a "factory" law firm; although volume is key, lawyers see only a small part of the file without working the case to completion. More respect is given to non-lawyer managers and long time (but frequently unprofessional) support staff than lawyers. Lawyers are required to clock-in and clock-out, and are given a hard time for occasionally needing to leave work early, but not rewarded for occasionally staying late.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate more of a community among the lawyers. Consider putting all the lawyers in an area together to create more of a law firm atmosphere for them. Once the lawyers are acquainted with one another, they will be better able to support each other. Recognize that experienced lawyers are accustomed to a "law firm culture," and can be shocked and dissatisfied by the difference at this office.

    Stable, but micromanaged with no room for growth

    Bankruptcy Case Manager I (Former Employee)

    ProsStable job
    Average pay
    Good benefits
    Nice location

    ConsSeverely micromanaged (office-space style, with 5 managers for each employee)
    Absolutely zero opportunity for upward mobility
    no raises

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop micromanaging employees. If the work gets done quickly and it's good quality, that's really all that matters.
