A supposed group of "so called professionals" that I've worked with that uses completely unprofessional language/manners

Pros

The lower support staff are nice people. The work schedule is flexible IF management likes you. Main office in California is helpful and respectful.

Cons

Unprofessional language. Unfprofessional demeanor from upper management. Definitely play favorites. Office setting was used as a daycare center. Not accomodating to evironmental settings. Work area is very small and cramped. Restroom time is frowned upon. Pay is negligible compared to other legal assistants in other firms.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As a group of apparent, learned lawyers, you need to uphold them all to use professional language in a professional setting. Got to get over the power play that you have a degree that only gives you an education to be able to use "the law" against your employees. If you're going to take government funds to train new employees, you need to actually train them, not just assume that they know what they are doing just because you keep forgetting they are new.

    Pros

    1. People are willing to help each other out.
    2. The software learning curve is not high.
    3. Expectations are low for new hires.
    4. You will get trained on how to do your job effectively.

    Cons

    1. Nepotism with management, rampant, rampant nepotism.
    2. The initial training is a joke. It's too fast, too much and there's not enough time to absorb the information.
    3. Low pay and the pay raises are pathetic.
    4. No parking.
    5. No room for advancement.
    6. Staff (support and attorneys) who are unqualified or incompetent remain employed longer than they should.
    7. It's easier to get written up than get praise.
    8. Management has poor communication with support staff and they don't listen to feedback at all.
    9. No matter how much money you helped pull in, your salary and your once a year raise will not reflect it.
    10. Knowing that I'm replaceable, at any time.
    11. No room to bargain, negotiate, or ask for better benefits/pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hand out raises once a year, especially if the raise is pathetically low. It's demoralizing.
