    Pros

    The flexibility for overtime and the money was good...not great, but good.

    Cons

    Was completely overworked and was constantly demanded to produce. It was almost considered a crime if you were caught by your boss having a simple conversation with an associate. The expectation was to clear out everything before day's end no matter what. There is no flex time nor the characteristics of being in the 21st century for work/life balance. I wouldn't recommend this to any seasoned worker....it might be good for those just starting out, but believe me there is better out there.

    Pros

    Free parking Fruit twice a week That's about it

    Cons

    No training Aggressive Management who bark orders at you rather than asking you how they can help, bare in mind you have had no training and are trying to adhere to the shoddy policies they have put in place that clearly don't work. Those that stay hours after work every night are viewed as 'loyal' instead of thinking about how stressed that person is as they clearly either cant prioritise their workload, or have too much work. Yet there are posters all over the office promoting a 'good work life balance' and 'mental health awareness' ironic right! Appalling systems that are unfit to manage even the basic of reports The whole business is based on blame culture - whenever something goes wrong they try to find out who to pin it on , not how to resolve the issue going forwards. When you do admit to making a mistake, management try to influence you to blame someone else. Employees of all levels speak to you like you are nothing. I have never been spoken down to and patronized so much in my working life, and they wonder why everyone is so de-motivated and staff turnover is so ridiculously high.

    EXTRAORDINARY HIGH WORK LOAD!

    Pros

    Colleagues (exclude managers) are really helpful. Always ready to answer your questions.

    Cons

    High workload High workload High workload Junior staffs are assigned 70-100 cases on your 2nd week mark. Managers are always busy and no time to respond to you when there is questions. Work are more to self study with minimal guidance. EXTREMELY HIGH WORK LOAD! Be ready to clear at least 150 - 300 emails a day. AVOID IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR WORK LIFE BALANCE AS THERE IS CLEARLY NO WORK LIFE BALANCE AT ALL. Teams are always very lean, squeeze every bit out of you. You should be able to multi task at all times. Managers will fault you when there’s minor incident.

    Worst Place To Work

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    cool coworkers but everyone in upper management is unhelpful and rude

    Cons

    if you can avoid working here please do. they do not disclose the long and unmanageable work load and hours to you before hiring. upper management is very rude and snobby and take their stress of a workload and put it on you. I cannot emphasize the terrible work/life balance you will not have a chance to live life and work here at the same time. I had nights where I couldn't sleep due to the stress of the workload waiting for me the next morning. you can find another immigration law firm to work at that won't stress you out and will definitely pay you a lot more for your time and efforts!
