Pros

The lawyers are fantastic. The team I worked on was supportive and willing to give new assignments to challenge you if you proved to handle the no-brain tasks efficiently.

Cons

This is the headquarter office and there are some office politics you cannot avoid. There are also some cliques, and people do get targeted at others expense, mainly on a personal level.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

While many of the lawyers are fantastic, some of the administrative staff from case assistants to HR have a little too much free time which is why people end up being personally attacked. I think the company could use a bit of a moral boost.

    I have been working at Gordon & Rees

    Pros

    A relaxed atmosphere that fosters familiarity. The ability to work in an low stress high satisfaction environment. Colleagues are helpful and respectful of others. The benefits the firm provides are on par with industry standards. Very understanding when one wants to take time off. Gym benefits are amazing for the firm employees.

    Cons

    Work can be somewhat tedious at times. The lack of communication between different levels of staff can sometimes lead to confusion and frustration. All in all there is somewhat good communication but there are times when there is breakdown and deadlines have to be met. The salary is a little below average but that is atrributable to the size of the firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give detailed instructions on how to climb the company ladder for both attorneys and non legal professionals.
