    Pros

    Steady paycheck, can learn a lot if you apply yourself. But its a sink or swim mentality with a lot sharks in the water.

    Cons

    Greedy management, nepitism running rampant, not much room for advancement. Lots of turnover and lots of incompetence all around.

    Advice to Management

    Dont be so greedy and empower the people that help make it all happen instead of making them feel thankful to have a job that can barely pay the bills.

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers. Sometimes recognized for good work.

    Cons

    MANAGEMENT. Lots of work for little pay. Very clique-ish. Managers play favorites.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff. These people work hard to put money in your pockets EVERYDAY. Show them that they matter. Money is a motivation. Also, take the time to train new hires for more than 15 minutes.

    Pros

    Fair pay. Decent time off. Most people are nice to work with. Overtime is optional. Open door policy is good.

    Cons

    Cliques. No raises given in the last few years. Layoffs. Feeling unappreciated and overworked. Very little training and mostly have to train yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees a little more and encourage them as often as possible. If they fail, you fail.

    Pros

    Full time job
    Steady paycheck
    Not retail or a restaurant
    Indoors
    They buy barbecue at Christmas

    Cons

    RAMPANT cronyism and nepotism. If you're not part of one of two particular families, you will not be promoted.

    Very low pay. Don't expect a raise either, because any time the company has any kind of profit, they use it to acquire a new firm. We're constantly hearing how it's been a hard year, it's usually followed by an acquisition announcement.

    Members of management are childish and lazy. They take over-long lunches and breaks. The only time they work a full 40 hours in a week is when we have to work overtime on the weekend.

    Half-baked schemes are implemented without clear directives or plans which has resulted in major headaches, slowed production, increased errors and low morale. Example: automation was implemented to handle a certain department's workload. That department was laid off with LESS THAN A WEEK'S NOTICE. Less than five people were kept on, and when the automation failed, those people continued to be pulled away from the new department they were trying to learn in order to clean up the mess made by the automation. Oh, and automation is now spreading to the other departments as well.

    If an issue won't get a manager fired that day, it will not be fixed.

    Employees in other offices, like Charlotte and Wilmington have the job title of "Legal Assistant". Wilkesboro used to as well, until it was discovered that Legal Assistants should be paid more, then our job title was changed to "Data Entry Specialist."

    No 401k matching... but you get a soda fountain!

    We were recently informed that a refrigerator is a "privilege."

    Advice to Management

    HAVE A PLAN! Stop forcing change without giving a thought about how it's actually supposed to function on a day to day basis! Ideas are not enough.

    Work as hard as your employees, for a change. Come back from lunch on time. Spend some time at your desk working with your team. Learn how to do what they do.

    Pay us what we deserve and give us the title we deserve.

    Pros

    Good perks sometimes
    Current software
    Time off is ok
    Have some voice
    Have personal security card

    Cons

    Plots behind your back
    Lies about what you will do
    Not transparent
    Deceive you by stating you're doing well, and they are really saying something else
    Work, work, work...retaliated if you ask too many questions
    Departments are in competition of each other
    Horrible management and horrible training, you won't get trained if management thinks you are a threat. Just not worth it, overlook and move on.

    Advice to Management

    Too late to change, company is growing out of control. Too bad.

    Pros

    Work mates are pleasant. I earn a below market salary and a below average health insurance is provided at a price.

    Cons

    We had hope that the management was finally improving over 2 years ago when an excellent person took over one section of the firm. Finally, attorneys would be rewarded for a job well done. As the program expanded, we were excited about potential benefits and for this program to spread to all sections. Also, the employees in this newly headed section felt they were finally getting the training needed and their concerns were being heard. We were hopeful. Out of the blue, the person turning around the company was gone. We learned that the owners had decided to re-organize the firm again, asking partners to leave as well as many employees OUT OF THE BLUE. Now we have gone backwards in our production, have less benefits, less income and more work. The only one who listened to us is gone. As of 2015 we are again being run by inactive and uninvolved partners.This is obviously a failing law firm.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to run a business with compassion. If you practiced law with us you might realize how hard we work and how much we need guidance, as well as a reward system, like the one excellent partner who is now gone provided us.
