Cool Company

Paralegal (Former Employee)
Fort Lauderdale, FL

I worked at Law Offices of Marshall C Watson full-time for more than a year

ProsThe 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.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementTrain employees more effectively, will reap more productivity. Have more incentives for employees to promote employee morale.

Choice Legal/Marshall Watson....

Foreclosure Paralegal (Former Employee)
Fort Lauderdale, FL

I worked at Law Offices of Marshall C Watson full-time for more than a year

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

ConsDon'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 Senior ManagementBe 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

good company

Legal Fees Analyst (Former Employee)

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

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

Advice to Senior ManagementImprove 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.

Opportunity to learn

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Law Offices of Marshall C Watson

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

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