    Pros

    Access to modern technology in some areas, resume booster for those outside the legal arena.

    Cons

    Very stingy with staff compensation. Years pass with no raises, advancement, improvement or respect. Downsizing so work overload falls on those remaining. Toxic work environment. Too driven in gaining bragging rights that they are one of the Top 50 Best Employers but provide no rewards or compensation. Makes you question the validity of these surveys and who is filling them out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All employees deserve respect and compensation for their hard work. Appreciate an employee's long term loyal service. The financial quality of life for staff has gone extremely downhill. A 1% raise may not seem significant to upper management so you've done away with it, but to staff, it's a small token that we worked hard for 12 long months to get. And most haven't even been getting that 1% for years. Hmmm, but we work for one of the Top 50...

    Pros

    - the support structure of a large law firm
    - job mobility

    Cons

    - cheap (instead of hiring someone to do a specific job they offloaded it on me for months with no regard to my workload)
    - more concerned with appearances than actually fostering a positive work environment (In order to be rated one of Canada/GTA's Best Employers HR would e-mail employees multiple times a day to fill out a survey)
    - if you aren't a senior lawyer don't expect to be treated with much respect

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on treating ALL employees with respect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why hire associates if you treat them like delivery people?
