    Pros

    The Lawyers are pretty cool people. Get paid weekly, that was awesome!!!. Work ends at 5pm,after that they send you home. Love the balance. Opportunities for overtime when needed. The employees are young. Has friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    Heavy workload or cases, need to hire more people to manage case loads. Poor training. Needs better communication between departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train employees more effectively, will reap more productivity. Have more incentives for employees to promote employee morale.

    Pros

    They don't micromanage. They let you do your job. Good benefits as well.

    Cons

    Don't expect to get a review. I was there for 2 years before I got a raise (after months of asking). I was laid off a month later. They are not concerned with what kind of job you do, just hiring/retaining the cheapest employees.

    They are constantly laying people off (about 100 people since August 2013). You cant feel safe there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be loyal to the employees who are loyal to you and that do a good job. Don't hire people and then get rid of them after 2 years just because you think you pay them too much.

    Pros

    MCW is a pretty good company to work for. The salaries are somewhat good.

    Cons

    hours are not flexible. It is a straight 8:30-5:30 job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve your management and people skills. Not everyone can just completely be on board with everything you say to them just because you're a manager. Figure out how to motivate people more.

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn about legal processes and to prepare guidance documents for these processes. Variety in the jobs that are available.

    Cons

    Not all of the employees are very professional and many lack basic understanding of how a corporation should operate. Many of the employees are not competent to execute their jobs effectively.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Firm should establish a Quality Assurance Program and regularly engage in process improvement. Clear and metrics should be established and monitored for compliance.
