    I worked at Law Offices of Marshall C Watson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most attorneys were very accommodating, friendly and willing to assist and explain files.

    Cons

    Support staff management are not trained well in interpersonal skills. They do not communicate effectively and the training is extremely poor to say the least. Also, overload of cases. Firm needs to hire additional staff or cut back work load. Everyone is stressed to the max.

    Advice to Management

    Implement a uniform training program for all new employees. Access skills as the employee progresses. Training management to deal professionally and communicate with staff daily so that they are part of the planning and caseload analysis. Need to bring in an unbiased company to implement an ongoing training program. Overall at this point the firm has achieved the status of having a negative, tension filled, stressed work environment. Congrats.

    Pros

    They don't micromanage. They let you do your job. Good benefits as well.

    Cons

    Don't expect to get a review. I was there for 2 years before I got a raise (after months of asking). I was laid off a month later. They are not concerned with what kind of job you do, just hiring/retaining the cheapest employees.

    They are constantly laying people off (about 100 people since August 2013). You cant feel safe there.

    Advice to Management

    Be loyal to the employees who are loyal to you and that do a good job. Don't hire people and then get rid of them after 2 years just because you think you pay them too much.

    Pros

    MCW is a pretty good company to work for. The salaries are somewhat good.

    Cons

    hours are not flexible. It is a straight 8:30-5:30 job.

    Advice to Management

    Improve your management and people skills. Not everyone can just completely be on board with everything you say to them just because you're a manager. Figure out how to motivate people more.
