    Pros

    Lots of work. It keeps you busy every day and makes vacations and holidays that much better. Whatever personal or professional problems you have will disappear since there's no time to dwell on them at work. Plenty of help and respect from staff and bosses.

    Cons

    Lots of clients with sad stories that will really bum you out or outrageous stories that will absolutely drive you crazy. If you don't drink, then start!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. This high volume bankruptcy firm can get crazy sometimes, especially around foreclosure day. One other thing, make sure your newer attorneys are not being led astray by paralegals who think they know how the law works. By the way, paralegals teach us how to do this stuff.

    Pros

    The good thing about this job is the fact that you gain bankruptcy knowledge. You are paid salary even though the salary is lower than other law firms. The people at the firm were nice and friendly. The job wasn't too hard. The workload was heavy but it did help the time go by.

    Cons

    The pay is too low for the work that is required. We were required to do mandatory overtime. No room for growth. Management didn't work with you at all. If you were out with a cold they required a doctor's note or you would be written up. 6 day work weeks. Terrible benefits.


  3. Supportive management and a great learning experience

    Pros

    At Clark and Washington you will work with attorneys who are excellent mentors where you will really understand the "ins and outs" of bankruptcy law. Invaluable work experience.

    Cons

    It's not as glamorous as some of the large firms in a big city, but the experience and knowledge you gain from this firm is invaluable.

    Pros

    -The experience you learn from this company is a stepping stop to a plethora of opportunties. -Can develop great working relationships with attorneys, paralegals, and other administrative position members (great networking opportunities) -Companywide activities (ie braves game, bowling night)

    Cons

    -Management is hell on earth (she will make your life a living hell---from day 2) -You are not allowed to listen to music or have a heater while working -If you are 10 minutes late to work you have to send an email stating why exactly you were late, if late more than 3 times you will get written up -Vacations are scrutinzed by the office manager, if she doesn't think they are important you will not be allowed to take them -the pay is horrible!....I repeat the pay is horrible. -Overtime is not counted as time and a half (it is half time ex. if you make 10 dollars an hour, you will make $5.00 an hour for overtime) -Management harassed me while I was pregnant and said I went to the doctor too much (they were my regular scheduled appts). They stopped after my doctor/attorney wrote her a letter. -alot of micro managing (no breathing space) -Management is unprofessional, uneducated, and uncaring

    Advice to Management

    Start paying your employees more, caring about your employees more and treating them like human beings instead of robots, and you would not have a high turn over rate like you do!
