      Don't work here

      Apr 3, 2021 - Assistant Paralegal I in Irvine, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The benefits, weekly bagels, and the Christmas Party

      Cons

      Literally everything else. The people are cruel, the supervising paralegals are incompetent and not helpful. They tell you that we're a family (which is code for "We're going to ask you to work a lot"). They don't care about any of their employees. They hire people with potential, but no background in immigration law. They say that they want to foster an environment where you can ask questions, learn, and establish a career. I was frequently belittled by both my supervisor and the attorneys that I worked with for asking questions to clarify things. There was always a disconnect between the advice that I would get from the attorney and my supervisor. They would tell me things that would be right in the exact circumstance in which I asked the question, but then I would try to apply their directions in another situation and it was wrong. There are many elements to the job that are client specific, such as formatting of support letters and other documentation. Management expected you to know years of client preferences immediately. The partners couldn't care less about creating a positive work environment. The turnover is incredible. Save yourself a great deal of anxiety and stress and don't ever work here.

      Fragomen review

      Pros

      Very flexible and understanding. The employees try to accommodate the clients as much as they can. The values the law firm hold are unique.

      Cons

      There is a lack of organization that we are trying to fix. Yes, everyone contributes to that but its also Covid so there is a lack of support that is expected to do what a whole group of people would do in the office entirely.

      Free filtered water and coffee Generous PTO

      -Catty Micromanaging Upper Management -Attorneys are very critical but prefer to speak with managers about their critiques instead of the employees who are actually doing the work so there is no trust -No one speaks to each other in the office -Management does not recognize good work but instead says “That is your job and what you’re supposed to do” (Yes, this actually happened) -VERY stressful work for low pay! -High turnover rate -Training is non existent, instead management expects you to go to them with questions without a solid foundation of knowledge -Drafting petitions that are all over the place and no clear standard of how to set them up correctly -Toxic work environment

      Pros

      The people are fantastic, and it seems that management is valuing its paralegals, legal assistants, and law clerks more so than in previous years.

      Cons

      The demands of work often forces a lack of interaction and collaboration with team members.
