      Pros

      Flexible hours, paid training, co-workers suffer with you so you have someone to relate to.

      Cons

      No real opportunity for advancement. Meticulous time clock monitoring, micromanagement. Debt collection grates on the soul.

      Good and Bad, I would not stay too long there

      Pros

      Job was ok. Paid training. You learn about debt collection and related fields of bankruptcy and some real estate law. They offer benefits to full time employees. Clean bathrooms and break room. Paid 20 min lunch.

      Cons

      Benefits are costly with the amount taken out of your paycheck. They claim to offer flexible scheduling but that is not true anymore. Bonuses are a joke and they will use any excuse to deprive you of one by issuing a write up. The place got better in some ways after Mr. Pressler died as the remaining partners were more generous in giving raises but they laid off many talented people simply because they made too much. You're just a number to them, you can be a great employee but if they feel you cost too much in payroll you will be laid off. Selective enforcement of office rules and policy based on who you are. Management is a mixed bag. Some are great genuine people and others are robots that only care about numbers. Overall they are ok but are constrained by the costs of running the firm so can't blame them for some of their decisions when it boils down to money most of the time. They are looking to outsource as much as they can to a company based outside the U.S. so expect many positions and departments to dwindle over time.

      Very low pay for stressful work. I wouldn't recommend working here unless you have to

      Pros

      hours that are somewhat flexible, option to work 8-4

      Cons

      you spend all day taking phone calls non-stop and listening to peoples' horror stories about why they can't pay their debts. definately not for the faint of heart. from homelessness to people who are in absurd amounts of medical debt, you basically encounter everything on these phone calls. there are those rare moments where you do feel like you're helping someone, but most of the time it's just levying peoples' bank accounts and garnishing their wages and then having to deal with their reaction to that

      Advertised as Paralegal. Reality: You're a cold-calling collections employee

      Pros

      $15/HR right out of college

      Cons

      More like a call center than a law firm, mostly young people; never once met an attorney. They were somewhere else.

      Pros

      Training crew is decent and nice

      Cons

      Everything - head leadership is very toxic and care little about the workers. Only care about the money they can get out of you. Will watch you very closely and every move you make. HR will pretend to be cool with you, but behind the scenes they could care less. They are also getting strict on working 40 hours. Schedule is no longer a perk here.

      Pros

      flex schedule, commute and location

      Cons

      Poor leadership. The owners are attorneys and as such, don't listen to anyone without a law degree. Bad communication from upper management down to the rest of the staff. Benefits are way too expensive for anyone starting at an entry level position. Paid time off is almost non-existent. The office stays open in the worst weather so that they don't have to pay the staff due to an office closure.
