Paralegal (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

Pros-Smart co-workers (some, not all)

    Paralegal (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    I have been working at Berry Appleman & Leiden full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Independence. Will learn a lot. Cons: Management does not care about employees. They acted as though they did in the beginning to put on a good face but secretly they don't… Advice to Senior Management: The issue is not "the other team". The issue is… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
