    "Great Place to Work"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Assistant Paralegal 

    I have been working at Fragomen full-time

    Pros

    Coworkers are amazing. Feel there is constant support from the team. Supervisors take time to get to know you. The benefits are good too.

    Cons

    There tends to be a less than work -life balance. They are working to address this concern. Other than that nothing else.

    Current Employee - Assistant Paralegal in Los Angeles, CA

    I have been working at Fragomen full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    When all is going well, its a good casual and supportive environment. You can learn a lot in a short amount of time, and most of the attorneys and supervisors are always willing to answer questions and help when they can.

    Cons

    They will not hesitate to throw you under the bus when something goes wrong, despite having total oversight.

    Pros

    Working with the hottest tech companies in the Silicon Valley. Attorneys that recognize your work and contributions. Teams that support you and help you learn.

    Cons

    I have not yet encountered any, but I'm sure if they come along it will be easily fixed.

    I worked at Fragomen full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for overtime work. Good benefits. You learn a lot about immigration very quickly. Be vocal about what type of case work you would like, because you might be exposed to a wider range of work if you ask.

    Cons

    Very little training. High volume of work and little support. The lack of team building or sense of wider purpose makes form filling a tedious experience.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Fragomen full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Offices are always super fresh and well stocked w sugary beverages to keep you energized for a grueling work load

    Cons

    The most unprofessional work environment that profits off of fresh college grads eager to learn. The firm practices massive legal document services preparation through the use of off shored legal preparation. When docs are prepared undertrained staff are expected to provide legal analysis on complex subject matter. Th isn’t a learning curve. It’s a hit or miss world that relies heavily on cutting fees for mega clients who do not need 100% perfection. Mistakes are handed down thru the ranks and blame is given freely. Staff at all levels, especially partners, is immature, short sighted, and offensive. Many instances of pitting staff against each other and a well-oiled gossip mongering session is used as management skills. A senses of PTSD for those of us that have left. A wish a job here on no one.

    Former Employee - Paralegal 

    I worked at Fragomen full-time

    Pros

    - free food - good overtime pay - great PTO - provides a lot of useful basic work skills- prioritization, dealing with multiple moving deadlines, organization, etc - overall a solid first job out of college for someone potentially interested in immigration law. also provides decent insight into the corporate law experience in general. - paralegals are typically young (22-28) and friendly

    Cons

    - experience can vary immensely depending on the team you're on - intense workload & long hours - not a lot of room for growth/creativity/intellectual stimulation
