    Pros

    Despite having to abide by many laws and regulations, they try to make it a nice atmosphere Company buys lunch for whole staff once a month and attorneys bring donuts every Friday Training has gotten much better over last few years and orientation is great - very entertaining and informative Ownership appears to want to make changes for the better and some have been made

    Cons

    Change is slow - would explain some of the other reviews Health benefits are too expensive for a family, not sure about individuals though

    Advice to Management

    Review health insurance and find cheaper family plans


  2. Rampant Discrimination, Unethical Procedures, Dishonored Bonuses

    Pros

    Monthly Lunches Catered Yearly Holiday Party Flexible Schedule

    Cons

    Unprofessional, Micromanaged, Must be in the "Bass Club" to get anywhere in this company. Managers and Owner influence their co-workers how to vote in a Presidential Election year

    Advice to Management

    Allow HR to do their job. Complaints are rampant with sexual harassment, racial and sexual preference discrimination. You would think being a Law Office, they would comply and remedy such complaints among coworkers and management. Performance means nothing unless you are in the "Bass Club" (socializing with Managers and the Owner outside of work). Disorganized Bonus offerings. Management says you will get X amount if you meet certain goals. Goals are met and then Owner does not want to pay out.

    Pros

    Decent wages for Southern Arizona Multiple Locations Central, West and North West Monthly Free Lunch to celebrate Birthdays Is Hiring

    Cons

    Worked with the company for almost three years. Received no raises, no cost of living increases and no reviews. Management had a habit of lying to the department, could not schedule work efficiently and constantly set unreasonable deadlines. They played the drinking buddy game with select individuals. Senior management at times would publicly humiliate employees that displeased them by yelling at them in meetings and the halls, the company is micromanaged to the point that having managers was useless. Benefits were OK for single employees, almost a grand per month for married employees and pretty much the cheapest that the company could find without passing any form of savings to the employees. Human resources constantly enforcing policies that did not exist, violating OSHA laws at whim. Management constantly belittling staff, the turn over rate higher than most companies ten times the size due to the negative work environment, bad hours, lack of advancement unless you are friends with management, lack of raises and just general lack of acknowledgment of doing a good job. The only reason they stay in business is they are a debt collection agency. However the owner does not acknowledge the work her employees does in order to generate her profit, preferring to keep the bulk of it for herself while bleeding people up to 7 - 12 per month at any given time.

    Advice to Management

    Send all management including owner to management training, anger management training and sensitivity training. Actually reward employees that work hard for the company and are loyal.

    Pros

    A job, is a job. Location Northwest is good for those few that live that far north to earn $12 hour

    Cons

    Pay is sub-par, work is degrading, owner and management are obusive, no respect at all for the individual, turn over is incredibly high. Compensation promises are mis-leaading and not honored.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in domr true Human Resource and People Managers to handle operations as well as staffing and empower them to do what is needed.
