    I worked at Magdich & Associates P.C. full-time

    Pros

    If your a self-starter and like to work independently, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Not a lot of cohesiveness on team. The firm could benefit from group supported trials and incorporating best practices for the best possible client outcome.

    Advice to Management

    Start over with a professional to lead your team in a positive direction. Let the people go that obviously don't want to be there even when they are.


  2. "Downhill Fast"

    Pros

    The majority of the staff were great to work with. Fun events and good end of the year bonuses.

    Cons

    Unprofessional behavior by management, hard working employees are over worked, underappreciated, and under paid. Employees that slack off are the favorites, poor benefits, individuals worth are not recognized, not wanting certain employees to succeed, do not want to try and fight for amazing employees, therefore horrible turnover. It was not always like this, so it is heartbreaking it went so downhill.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize an amazing staff when you have it and compensate them as they deserve. Strive to be the best law firm there is so you do not lose the most valuable people who have walked through the door. Those people are hard to find. Be more hard-working and stay focused.

    I worked at Magdich & Associates P.C. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Location is convenient. The attorneys are pleasant. The administrative staff are nice to work with. The office manager is very communicative.

    Cons

    Compensation is unsatisfactory.
    Raises are extremely lacking, if given at all.
    Health insurance is not affordable enough to make it a viable option.

    Advice to Management

    Employees will stay longer if they feel compensated and appreciated, which they do not feel now. Until this happens, the revolving door of support staff will continue.

    Pros

    They regularly give marginally qualified applicants an opportunity.

    Cons

    Would you work for a firm where:

    Management engages in childish whispering.
    All employees are contract employees.
    Support staff has to clock in and out.
    All contract employees suffer under the unfettered whims of management.
    Standards of performance are embarrassingly low on a professional scale.
    Behavior of professional staff includes casual profanity and obscenities as a matter of course.
    Office politics rather than performance dictates your work conditions.
    Promisesd made and never kept.
    Supplies are kept in a locked environment so that contract employees must request such simple things as pencils.
    Final pay was removed from automatic deposit and withheld until complaint to the Wage and Hour Division was made.

    Advice to Management

    Ask yourself -- Would I want to work for myself? If so, try being candid this time and think about it again.

    We do not have any contract employees. This employee was terminated due to poor work performance.

    Pros

    This is a very good firm to work for. I enjoy all the people who are here. There is not hierarchy of people. Attorneys are treated the same as support staff. Management has an open door policy and is always willing to discuss issues and look for possible solutions.

    Cons

    This is a smaller firm, only 10 attorneys and about 10 support staff. This can also be seen as a positive. We are all very close.

    Advice to Management

    There is really nothing I would ask Management to change about the environment of the firm. Everyone is supportive and I have witnesses people move from receptionist up to being a paralegal. All the training is in house.

    Pros

    Fast paced firm with the majority of the practice dealing with insurance defense and medical malpractice. The firm has expanded in the last two years adding several experienced attorneys, as well as support staff. I enjoy that the management and staff work well together. Management takes the time to train each employee on a one-on-one basis.
    Bonuses and pay raises are frequent when deserved. Overall, great work environment.

    Cons

    Fast paced working enviornment, so be prepared to be busy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Very family oriented, most everyone gets along with each other. Everyone works as a team and teamwork is encouraged there. When someone is out there is always someone willing to step in and assist. The firm is pretty organized and is going to a paperless enviroment. They have great technology and are very accomodating when it comes to family and personal time off.

    Cons

    Very busy sometimes a little overwhelming

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be as approachable and professional as always.

    Pros

    There is plenty of work to keep busy.

    Cons

    Ditto on the office environment; bias, favoritism, constant miscommunication, promises at interview and phone call NEVER happened; "putting the blame" on the scapegoat; management is totally forgetful; "oh, we'll get that for you tomorrow"...tomorrow never comes. You can be happy walking in and leaving as if you committed a crime over something that is only in management's control. Awful...just awful

    Advice to Management

    Look at the entire situation before placing blame. Communicate with parties that are involved. Investigate when forgetfulness by certain people cause havoc and blame is placed on the wrong party.
