    "Kind of moot - you’re not getting hired, this place is going under"

      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at McCabe, Weisberg & Conway

      Pros

      Good first professional job, you didn’t need experience to get your foot in the door, pretty decent sense of camaraderie (some people will put you in their crosshairs, so I can’t endorse camaraderie too much)

      Cons

      Biggest con for you, inquisitor, is this place is having massive layoffs. I was lucky enough to get out on my own terms, but there was a day in February 2019 where about 15 people got laid off between a few of the offices. The biggest con for me as a former employee was that upper management let workers stick around that absolutely should’ve been fired. Lying, backstabbing, racism, threats of crying wolf, gossiping, interfering...

      Advice to Management

      Take on an area of law in addition to foreclosure. Fire workers that are caught lying and interfering with other workers’ work and keep the workers that actually help things run smoothly

      Pros

      Other than the wges, I cannot see any pros

      Cons

      They only use you for your connections to further their firm, strong racial undertone

      I have been working at McCabe, Weisberg & Conway full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      I cannot think of any Pros, not one.

      Cons

      It feels like the firm is closing down. Lots of layoffs in the past 4-6mths. No one feels safe. Staff are not being replaced when they leave either and the remaining staff are doing the work of 4 employees each. Everyone is stressed and management don't care. Apparently you can't even take time off even when you have it available. It would be wise to get out now while we still can.

      Advice to Management

      Reward your employees that are left by raising their pay for a job well done. Without us you wouldn't have a business.

      I worked at McCabe, Weisberg & Conway full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Nothing good to say other than your co-workers. Not management, they are gossipy and rude and judgmental.

      Cons

      I have never seen a law firm run like this. It is a human resources nightmare, make up their own laws and just outright don't care about anything. Upon being hired they will promise you things and once you start working there it all changes. No overtime, or your in trouble, but you better not work under or over 40 hours. No paid break, benefits are horrible, and have to pay for parking on a horrible salary. They have...

      Advice to Management

      Learn how to treat people. Better pay and benefits, free parking and most importantly learn the human resources laws before you try to make up your own.

      Pros

      Coworkers are good people for the most part. Location

      Cons

      Team Leads, Management, HR, Unprofessional, Deceitful

      Advice to Management

      Implement leadership training if higher level positions continue to be offered based off of employee relationships and not individual experience.

      Cons

      There are so many... -Management does not know how to manage -Senior management is oblivious to what's actually going on in the office -HR and the firm ignores what's going on, like blatant discrimination or the need for better training -It's not a professional environment, it's a high school complete with the same gossiping, backstabbing, inappropriate relationships, and bullying -The benefits are horrible,...

      Advice to Management

      Just because you have title of "manager" or supervisor" doesn't make you a freakin God. You guys are just humans like everyone else. Also, maybe treat your employees with a bit more respect and maybe you'll actually be able keep your employees longer.

      Great co-workers and very LOW PACE... Great place to "get your feet wet" within the industry

      - Complete lack of proper training - High turnover - Depressing work environment around managers - Can't listen to music via Pandora or any streaming devise - No opportunity to advance, even when Attorneys are the ones asking for the move - No reward for hard work, and expected to cover 3 other offices even though the current location is under staffed - Annual reviews are a joke - You'll only learn niche skills...
