    I worked at Jaffe and Asher full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I'm grateful for the opportunity I was given when I still lacked experience. Most of the people are friendly. The team I worked for was highly productive and we were given every opportunity to succeed.

    Cons

    Leadership was shady and the the turnover was ridiculous. Management pulled an Ides of March on the former CEO and had the guy fired when he was on his honeymoon. The owner is gullible. Unqualified people were promoted to management just because they looked the part. I'm not surprised this firm is on a downward spiral.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing, they're hopeless.

    Pros

    The only pro is that the location is great.

    Cons

    No organization. No learning. Barely doing attorney work and you are just a glorified debt collector. Also debt collectors with less education than attorneys make more money than the attorneys here. Do not work here.

    Pros

    Great attorneys to work with.
    Learning new skills. Bettering myself at SQL and Excel programming.
    The ability to work on your own and you’re not always micromanaged.
    Great benefits and working environment.
    High level of responsibility.

    Cons

    Recent downsizing.
    Lack of overtime.
    Just went through a major downsizing, so we lost some great workers and great managers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep our standards high and regain the ground lost.

    I worked at Jaffe and Asher full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Firm is being shown for what it is...a fake law firm that treats employees and clients horribly. They even created a fake company to assign rights to in order to file a lawsuit against a previous client. Google "jaffe and asher wells fargo".

    Cons

    Lawsuits brought by former employees and clients. Always try to cheat their employees. No real legal work, debt collection paper pushing attorneys. Office looks like people spit and pissed on the carpets and walls. Midtown Manhattan firm on a boondocks budget.

    Advice to Management

    Burn the place down and try and collect the insurance proceeds. When that doesn't work sue the insurance company...this stuff is right up your alley.

    Pros

    If you're OK with being an idiot and never using your education from 3rd grade upwards then this is the place to be.

    Cons

    It's a debt collection law firm. No learning of the law goes on here. You learn their computer systems from collectors, most of them can't even speak proper English. You call people on the phone and ask for money. The paralegals are treated like crap and it's an assembly line type situation, one paralegal drafts (i use this word very lightly) the complaint, one puts it out for service, one drafts the default. Everything is an approved template, meaning no legal research or writing. You review the mail merge docs the paralegals give you and sign them - 10 hrs later you go home, eat sleep, repeat.

    Advice to Management

    Try to take an interest in growing your employees skillset.
