    I worked at McCalla Raymer Leibert Pierce full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Once a year you can go to a cubs game , there is a rooftop.

    Cons

    No training, at all. Management has no understanding of anything, especiallly modern technology. Management is VERY unprofessional. As a paralegal you are responsible for the department being profitable, not management, not the attorneys, the staff. At the end of the month management is constantly circling presurring employees find money in order to be profitable. You cannot take normal lunches or breaks without... getting lectured, to the point where managers will hunt employees down in a break rooms and tell them to return to their desk to complete something. Despite being off the floor in a separate break room on a state mandated break. Working endless hours a week to only be yelled at each day as more and more staff quits. The litigation department has lost 70% if its staff TWICE in the last 2 years. On top of company layoffs (which are common), the litigation department is constantly barely staffed. Overtime is not allowed, employees are reprimanded for not completing the work of three people, as a result it is COMMON TO PUNCH OUT AND WORK. If you do not adhere to the toxic work life your loyalty will be questioned and you will be placed on company watch. All of this for under $38,000 a year. Other departments have an overall positive vibe.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Hartford, CT

    I worked at McCalla Raymer Leibert Pierce full-time

    Pros

    Hourly associates can " make up time" if you need to come in late or leave early.

    Cons

    Still laying people off every quarter. If you are not "in the right click" you are toast. Training is a joke. If you want to get ahead you need to be willing to "work off the books" to figure out what needs to be fixed and do it yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees and they will respect you and do more than the minimum required until they find the next employer.
