    I worked at Brock & Scott, PLLC full-time

    Pros

    Good opportunity to learn and work as an attorney or if school. Some opportunity to advance initially.

    Cons

    Named partners are disengaged. Managing partners don't have team world experience as lawyers. There is a lie glad ceiling because their modern relied on cheap labor from young lawyers. They don't recognize our care to retain top talent.

    Pros

    Great people and location. People are friendly at the non-management levels. Fun outting at local events.

    Cons

    Management structure is very strange. Managers are clickish and will talk about employees in a less than professional way.

    Advice to Management

    Let employees do the work that they were hire to do. Seems like you have too many bosses and not enough workers.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Brock & Scott, PLLC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Occassionally there is an overtime allowance. - Combines vacation and sick leave. - Co-workers are friendly and understanding. - Some schedule flexibility (weekends, extended-hours, etc.)

    Cons

    - Low pay and little to no benefits. - Management lacks experience. - The work is mind-numbing and monotonous. - The average employee possesses a skill level that is far below the industry standard. - Constant surveillance and critique, but no reward for exemplary work or higher qualifications. - Zero room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    - Hire partners, associates, and staff who are qualified to do the type of work that clients would expect. - Reward those who possess desirable skills. Don't just hire and keep those who will work for the lowest wages. - Keep work in house, don't farm out work to the lowest bidder.

    I worked at Brock & Scott, PLLC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    For the most part, co-workers were friendly and the workplace drama was kept down to a bare minimum. There aren't really any opportunities to move "up," but because they have a higher employee turnover rate, there's a good chance you can take on different responsibilities if you are interested in doing so.

    Cons

    If they ask you to start out as a temp, don't take the job. I was told in my initial interview and when I was offered the job that I would be under temp status for the first 30 days; later I found out that it's actually their policy for new hires to be temps for the first 90 days. It took four months for me to reach full-time status.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie to potential employees.

    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.

    I have been working at Brock & Scott, PLLC full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.
