    I have been working at Cole, Scott & Kissane full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friendly and professional. CSK is a serious firm dedicated to its clients and fair to their employees. Like any other job, there are rules to follow. they look for professional dedicated people to contribute to the growth and success of the firm. The firm is a stable employer (I have worked for firm 6 1/2 years) and have experienced continued growth since i started. Overtime is not required from the staff but available depending on your job, it provides for flexibility to choose you start and finish time including a choice of taking an hour or half hour lunches. they offer a generous benefit packages including vacation and paid holidays, it is a place that if you work hard and responsibly you could be able to retire here.

    Cons

    works fine for me, so none.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Cole, Scott & Kissane (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I currently work at this firm as a legal assistant. After working in this field for over 25 years, for both sole practitioners, medium firms, and large firms, I can honestly say that this firm is very fair. Of course there is an employee handbook with the firm's rules but they are very reasonable. If you're not willing to be a hard worker and a good employee then you should not feel entitled to be in a good environment and receive the good benefits they provide. I find that many people look out for what an employer can do for them but it goes both ways. Trust me, I am staff and I am low on the food chain, so to speak, but it frustrates me to hear other employees complain about things that are less than perfect and then see them do a less than average job. One great thing I want to mention about the firm is that it is very large and if you happen to find yourself on a particular team that is not a good fit, they will do their best to accommodate you and find a different team for you to work on. They invest a lot in their employees and try to make things work out. There are firms that would easily let someone go at the first complaint but this firm tries to work things out.

    Cons

    Can't think of any cons about the firm, as with any other workplace, there are a couple not so fresh and Good Apples but you will get that anywhere you go in any line of work.

    I have been working at Cole, Scott & Kissane full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    C.S.K. is a great place to work as it is not all the way in Downtown Miami. I know that there are several reviews that are not so hot, but at C.S.K. you need to have a great skill set and be willing to work hard. If you don't have those abilities then this is not the place for you. It's a great place to work as long as you are willing to work hard and know your litigation.

     They have a good PTO plan and allow you to make up time when you have doctor's appointments, etc. The best part is it's close to home so no more Metrorail to get downtown. There are several employees in the firm that have been here over 10 years so that's a testament to the firm.

    Cons

    Bonuses and raises are not the greatest but we always receive something every year.

    Advice to Management

    Be just a bit more generous with bonuses and raises. The staff works hard and at some point the cost of living will outweigh the benefits of working down south.
