    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Gordon & Rees full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work is monotonous and extremely boring, but very easy to do.

    Cons

    Hard to list all of them. Senior management is aloof and unresponsive. No one EVER responds to emails. Very impersonal and disconcerting. Co-workers are all stand-offish and unfriendly. I've never been more unhappy in a working environment. The lawyers don't really interact with you other than through email and are rude over the smallest of mistakes, even when you do so much extra for them. Very impersonal, nothing ever communicated or discussed with me, just done and dictated. Very basic and minimal benefits. Honestly not worth all of the time and effort that has to be put into the tasks for people that will replace you in a heartbeat and don't really care about the work you do at all. It's just a factory mill of people coming and going with no community or communication whatsoever.
