      Crazy expectations

      Pros

      Once you land the job as a Help Desk Technician you won’t be fired due to the fact you will be overworked, underpaid for the amount of work thrown at you will make your head spin and leave you psychologically drained. Iife you complain you'll be told to find another job and Quit so they don't have to pay unemployment. • Know that as a help desk Technician you will handle all incoming tickets and own them even if it required another team or it department to work on supporting a piece of software or fixing a network issue. • My Oldest ticket I had open was 2 years open pending another team to do something with it but they put it on the back burner or closed the task as they don’t have to “Own the Ticket.” Supervisors won’t let you close a ticket that hasn’t been resolved so it will sit there and count against you till the end of time.

      Cons

      Management team and Teammates At Ogletree you have your work and other co-workers have their work if that means emailed in tickets or phone calls. I've had co-workers hang up on people and tell me to call them back because they didn't know or want to deal with the user. Everyone works their shift and leaves no one pitches in on others email ticket time or workload to assist others. No team building events or comradery. Manager: A character at best didn't care about how to better the help desk as a whole and wasn't really connected to the day to day ordeals of the helpdesk, He was off trying to get the application team to pass off more work to the help desk team. The Manager had no level or supervisor or manager skill set

      Great Environment

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      For such a big firm everyone was super friendly which was really nice. The Atlanta office was a great place to work. They have a fully stocked fridge with refreshments and plenty of coffee in the break room. Parking was provided in a garage right in from of the building.

      Cons

      Raises depend mostly on work performance evaluations which can backfire when those in leadership roles fail to evaluate your performance in time.

      Billable Hours Goal Needs To Be Revamped for Paralegals

      Aug 20, 2021 - Paralegal 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Vacation time is generous for long term employees. A wide variety of opportunities for additional training to increase skill set.

      Cons

      Billable hour requirements are too high to meet bonus if sick or vacation time is used. In theory, goal could be met by working overtime but availability of overtime is often limited, making it impossible to make up the hours.

      Pros

      No real pros to this company.

      Cons

      Micro-managed, upper management doesn’t care about the little people that actually keep everything running. They bully you if they don’t get what they want from you.

      Pros

      Free drinks every other Friday, nice Christmas parties

      Cons

      There were cliques and hostility from attorneys and management. Chain of communication was unclear. High-stress environment with no training or support from superiors. The turnover is extremely high for a reason.
