Good company, busy pace, good environment

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Hunt Leibert Jacobson full-time for more than 8 years

ProsDecent pay, opportunity for overtime, casual dress code, you will learn a lot if you pay attention as there is a good amount of staff that has been there for years and they have a lot of knowledge to pass on if you want to learn.

ConsStressful industry-not really the firms fault, to much red tape

Advice to Senior ManagementHire people with industry experience

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Poor leadership in a drowning industry

Paralegal (Current Employee)
Hartford, CT

I have been working at Hunt Leibert Jacobson full-time for more than a year

ProsSome really nice paralegals to work with. Fabulous casual dress code.

ConsManagement is completely lacking in ability. They resort to fear tactics and yelling simply because they are incapable of handling the situation. The first response in the face of a problem should not be searching for someone to throw under the bus.

Advice to Senior ManagementGood management knows how to lead people and motivate. That does not exist here. Nothing undermines the productivity of an organization faster than poor leadership.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Poor management, complete lack of training, unpleasant staff

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Hunt Leibert Jacobson

ProsUltra casual dress and a handful of pleasant and helpful employee who make you feel welcome

ConsHorrible leadership, no team Uatmosphere, hardly any training (2 days!!!), unfairly promoting and paying certain employees over others without explanation, total lack of feedback to new hires(unless they can be blamed for something), morale is terrible.

Advice to Senior ManagementImplement better training techniques with trainers who actually have patience and are PLEASANT, train more than one employee on a specific job so that it doesn't just fall on one person's shoulders, promote and pay employees according to their ability, their seniority, and their work ethic, and finally maybe have upper management give new hires feedback and reviews, ask them questions like "hello, how are you," or "good morning, do you have any questions?" Make morale better in the entire firm because nobody is happy.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Most of the employees are very rude and quick to throw each other under the bus to make sure you loose your job!!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Hartford, CT

I have been working at Hunt Leibert Jacobson full-time for less than a year

Prosjob pays well and has a great casual dress code

Conspoor leadership ,lack of respect,BAD Training... word of advice learn about the job position as much as you can because most likely you will be training yourself and suck up to the co-workers as much as you can because if you don't they can give negative feed back to the HR and immediately get rid of you not because of your hard work but simply because they do not like you.

Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicating more with your new hires and employees and make sure that they are getting the properly trained

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
