    I have been working at Brock & Scott, PLLC full-time (more than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Pros

    Opportunity to do real work and move up to a certain degree.

    Cons

    Lack of vision, poor leadership, shortsightedness. The management is generally out of touch, the offices are in poor condition, and employees seem dissatisfied across the board.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs better benefits and needs to treat attorneys with more respect. The company needs to pay more competitively and do a better job distinguishing between different types of employees. They desperately need some sort of 401k match.

    Pros

    The hour lunch break, they allow you to listen to music from your cell phone, overtime is optional

    Cons

    They give you more work than the law should allow. The management is stretched thin, the expectations are high yet the training is scarce. You'll get use to doing one thing and they change it next week so you'll be doing something else. The Turn over rate is so high because they hire people with no experience so they don't have to pay them the normal rate & then they don't train them and expect them to train their selves. The people that's been there for years complain about never receiving a raise. Financial institutions shouldn't trust a firm that has a revolving door of people. The documents aren't kept in a secure place. I could go on and on. I hate it here and everyone else does too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kill yourselves. You don't care about your employees.

    Pros

    You can make a quick entry to learn different areas of the mortgage default industry.

    Cons

    Unequal pay, racism, sexism, instability, no pay raises, and incompetent managers. The senior management and HR care nothing about its' employees. All is geared towards the owners and a small elite circle earning big dollars while the remaining staff of 500 plus employees are overworked and underpaid.
