    Pros

    Mostly friendly people. Good work location.

    Cons

    No career advancement. You spend all day everyday doing menial work. No sense in going to college to work here. Management only cares about attorneys.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize your paralegal's skills or continue to lose good people.

  2. Crazies, Cliques, and Kissing Ass

    Pros

    The best reasons to work for these weirdos are the location and salary.

    Cons

    If you want to take a trip back to high school and deal with cliques and kissing ass then this place is for you. The people are absolutely crazy. I've never worked somewhere like that before. I would avoid it at all costs.

    Advice to Management

    I would say something but my mom always told me not to say anything if you can't say something nice.
