        Negative Outlook
        Disapproves of CEO

        I worked at Hunt Leibert Jacobson full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Free coffee (although weak as water) and tea; paid 30 min lunches; relaxed dress code; ability to listen to music while working.

        Cons

        I only gave the firm a 1 because I had to select something, otherwise I would've given a 0. Cons? Where do I begin. Favoritism, lack of communication, lack of training, NO employee morale, incompetent managers who spend all day gossipping, talking about their kids and covering their hind parts instead of showing any care and concern for employees and training them to do their jobs. Upper management doesn't care what goes...

        Advice to Management

        Fire every team lead/manager and hire new managerial staff who know how to treat people. Diversify your management workforce!!!! Provide more opportunities to people of color.

      • "Paralegal"

        StarStarStarStarStar
          Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

          I worked at Hunt Leibert Jacobson

          Pros

          The staff is very friendly and people are always willing to answer questions. It is a very relaxed atmosphere, not too stressful. It is a great community of people.

          Cons

          There is no real training when you are hired. The computer systems can be overwhelming and you are thrown into the fire your first day. There is also no real growth.

            I have been working at Hunt Leibert Jacobson

            Pros

            Casual work environment; Free Coffee; HR holds events to try and boost morale.

            Cons

            Lack of support and direction is demoralizing. Emotionally abusive at times. Never see partners taking an interest.

            Advice to Management

            Management needs to truly listen to employees and whatever input they give about the job. Treat people with dignity.

            I have been working at Hunt Leibert Jacobson full-time for more than a year

            Pros

            You can wear jeans and a sweatshirt if you would like. There are some nice people that work there. They have been trying to build moral lately by having "fun" events. (Some of them more fun than others).

            Cons

            You receive minimal training and are then expected to know what you are doing. Team leads and managment often yell and swear at people. The work is tedious.

            Advice to Management

            Keep building moral by having diferent events. Give fair raises anually. Encourage team leads to stop yelling and swearing at employees.

            I have been working at Hunt Leibert Jacobson full-time for more than 5 years

            Pros

            Listen to music while working, if they like you, you can pretty much do what you want. The work itself is common sense and easy to learn if you make an effort.

            Cons

            Gossip and a lot of bullying, I have known numerous people who have made complaints with HR and also filed complaints about supervisors who have been there for so long they get away with whatever they want. Once the complaint is made, nothing is done, the head attorneys do not get wind of it and it stays the same.People are high almost everyday when they come in to work and no one cares. If you have a good work ethic,...

            Advice to Management

            Do a sweep of the "team leads" with a few exceptions and put new ones in place who are not favorites to upper management. Make EVERYONE follow the same rules and not the ones who are favorites and walk around all day harrassing good employees.
