    I have been working at Hunt Leibert Jacobson full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If management likes you, you can make a decent amount of money. And the dress code is just plain awesome.

    Cons

    It's a complete dog and pony show. Some people don't even have to work everyday. There's a lot of favoritism and no one's really professional. If you're attractive, expect to be sexually harrassed. It's like high school all over again. If you make a complaint of harassment of any kind against the wrong person you'll be out the door. Very poor leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer leadership classes. Try to improve moral, have respect for others. There's a reason everyone tries to get out of there. If you improve those things you'll have loyal employees

    Fast Paced

    I have been working at Hunt Leibert Jacobson full-time

    Pros

    Casual dress code, free parking, near concerts and lots to learn.Building is easy to get to off of the highway.

    Cons

    Lots to learn but sometimes tough to get the attention needed. Hard to get promoted. The work does never end though so that can get to you. Hard to take time off and come back without lots of work piling up.

    I worked at Hunt Leibert Jacobson

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Horrible 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 ManagementAdvice

    Implement 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.

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

    Pros

    Decent 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people with industry experience

    I have been working at Hunt Leibert Jacobson full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    job pays well and has a great casual dress code

    Cons

    poor 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 ManagementAdvice

    Communicating more with your new hires and employees and make sure that they are getting the properly trained

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Management 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 ManagementAdvice

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