    "Lack of management skills, work balance not distributed evenly, lack of respect for employees."

    I worked at Bentley Bratcher & Associates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Best part of my job was an outing to with the firm. All food, drinks and games were paid for. They have a fully stocked kitchen with snacks, drinks and a TV. Lunch was the best part of my day! Pay was reasonable given the amount of work that was expected.

    Cons

    I was given jobs to do with very little hands on training. And on top of that they provided me with an outdated training manual. The work load to ratio of administrative help was unacceptable. There needs to be some sort of balance. My first week people were asking how it was to work in my position and little did I know what I had gotten myself into. I was apparently the 4th receptionist in less than 9 months. No regards to family life, other than on Fridays when we were able to leave directly at 5pm. Otherwise we were expected to stay until all work was finished. Yes overtime was disclosed but in my defense Monday thru Thursday then would have always been overtime days. Great for when I was a single, unmarried woman without kids. I was even told this is why we don't like to hire people with young children. They enjoy making people squirm, in fact they feed off one another. I wouldn't recommend working in this type of hostile environment. Beware unless you enjoy being unhappy and belittled every day.

    Advice to Management

    Update your manuals and training materials. Create a trusting, positive, uplifting and happy work environment. After all, we spend more time at work than at home with our families.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bentley Bratcher & Associates (Houston, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Very vague questions concerning multi-tasking and clerical skills. Interviewer noted a few times that this is not a normal job as there are more stressful timelines. Discussed my roles as previous companies and what direction they were going in when I began working with them and what I had to do contribute to their growth.
