I have been working at UpRight Law full-time (More than a year)
I feel like lot of the reviews are from people who unfortunately-- were under achievers, didn't want to work... has anyone ever heard the expression work hard play hard? Truth is, if you are selling the service the correct way, you have nothing to complain about. You'll see a lot of the only pros listed :
-video game room
ping pong table
Yes that is what people put when they are disgruntled after they leave, but they were the first people in the snack room to get the free food so they can eat it at their desks. They were also the first people to complain when they didn't get a hire or a promotion. This is not a job you just show up to, it needs to be something you are passionate about.
Bottom line, do the work get rewarded. That is the same for any job or career. The true Pro's:
-loop location close to transportation
-unlimited PTO-with management approval and/or doctors note
-random lunches with upper management to discuss ways to improve the company
-monthly meetings with the CEO talking about achievements and what is happening in the world of bankruptcy
-monthly check ins with manager
-student loan pay off benefit
-decent desk size with 2 monitors
-reasonable salary with quarterly raises if you level up
-friendly co-workers-happy hours, teams like volleyball and bowling
-in office yoga
-some work for home opportunity (some roles)
-The management here actually listens. They try to solve problems with you, they don't talk at you.
- challenging bonus structure that leaves you accountable for your own fate. Some find that a "con"-- I do not.
How do I know that? I am glad you asked... I was promoted after 6 months from a Senior Client Consultant to a Senior Customer Service Executive. I have seen both ends of the service spectrum and know enough to say that not all of these reviews hold much truth. You have to LIKE what you do. When asked to change roles, I asked a manager here what he thought and he said... if you are being asked to do something that people think that you would be great at, why are you even thinking about this? He was right!!
The ongoing support from my new team is amazing. Sure the job is hard-- it's supposed to be hard that is why they call it work... We just recently hired a new Vice President of the Customer Experience, and I have nothing but great things to say about her. Very inspiring to have someone jump right in and back you up- but again you have to do your part.
Bottom line this job isn't for slackers.
-still have the growing pains of a start up
-commission fluctuates, but that is growing pains of a start-up
- no 401k match
-my computer is slow sometimes
-office almost too cold in the summer
-got stuck in the elevator once (I got out)
Advice to Management
Advice to co workers and former employees first: Stop whining and get to work. Take ownership of yourself. Care about what you do. Stop worry about what others are doing and worry about yourself, hold yourself accountable.
Advice to management: Keep up the good work, thank you for your ongoing support. Upright Law slippers??
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at UpRight Law.
Interviewer was professional and straightforward. Phone interview went well, but perhaps because I was controlling the situation with great sales tactics. In person interview was a little different. COO came in pretty quickly to run the interview himself and was very cold and impersonal. Knowing that he wasn't that friendly and that the interview process was too easy should have been some serious red flags.
