What is the feeling of job security at The Barnes Firm?

Pros

Coworkers- cuz misery loves company! they are helpful and there’s a sense of camraderie. Nice building.

Cons

Hostile work environment - yelling profanity. No annual reviews. No management structure. Surveillance of the workspace and your productivity. Hourly pay, not salary. Attorneys are unprofessional and are are lateral rejects. Attorneys don’t care about their clients at all - it’s a volume mill. There is way too much work to get done in a day, but overtime is limited to 2.5 hours a week, because otherwise it will eat into their profits. Paralegal staff must stay at their desks all the time just to try to finish their work - which is impossible; No satisfaction of task completion. The is no Human Resources. Profits are by an oppressed staff, not a happy staff. High staff turnover.

Advice to Management

Annual reviews. Legitimate pay increases. Increase overtime hours - or give an extra week of vacation. Establish any resource for employees.

High staff turnover.
