      Pros

      Very flexible schedule. The office is open 8-8 Monday-Thursday, 8-7 on Friday and 9-2 on Saturday and you pick your hours for the most part. You get the typical paid holidays off - Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, etc. Everyone is around the same age (20-35) so it's easy to make friends which helps the day go by quicker. Most of the managers are helpful. You earn a sick day every two months. The training program (7 Days in a "classroom" and 3 months on the floor) is somewhat helpful. You find out from colleagues and managers that most of what you learned on the floor in training was wrong.

      Cons

      You are not a paralegal. You are a debt collector. You are stuck in a cubicle answering phones all day long. Managers and supervisors walk around telling you to answer a call if they see that you are not on the phone however, there is no incentive for you to answer more calls. They used to offer a bonus for the highest collectors but that was taken away. You are required to work one late night a week (12-8) and one Saturday a month. This is not a long time position - people typically leave within their first year. There is a huge turnover rate at this job. People in the training program are going on interviews.

      Pros

      The only reason I stayed at this job for almost 8 years was because of the very flexible work schedule. As long as you work your required 40 hours by the end of the week, you can pretty much choose how you do it.

      Cons

      Management is the equivalent to the popularity contest in high school. If you aren't friends with the right people, it is almost impossible to advance. You are over-worked, under paid, and blamed for the mistakes of others. Managers operate on the "do as I say, not as I do" theory.

      It seems partners are much more flexible with associates who have kids than with those who don’t. If it’s okay for my colleague with a kid to leave at 5 pm and log on later, why isn’t that the same for me (no kids)? My obligations might be different, but I still have a life and want to be able to do certain things, like catch that evening workout class or cook dinner for my partner. As you can probably tell, my firm is operating 100% in person. There is no point here — I’m just whining.

      Pros

      Flexible schedule, friendly co-workers and makes you want to stay on top of your bills. Easy to get to work as its right off the highway.

      Cons

      Upper management sucks, no raises, hassle you about a 20 minute lunch and get on your case about why you missed 3 hours of work. The place is a joke and its no wonder more people leave than people who actually stay. Don't get the benefits because it will cost more then what you think.

      Employees majority ages 21-35, Prepare to sound like a tape recorder and listen to people's "i cant pay" stories.

      Pros

      Decent pay when just out of college. Flexible Schedule. Friendly Employees.

      Cons

      Cell phone restriction, 20 min lunches, expensive benefits, no opportunity to advance in the company, maybe after 10 years or so.

      Pros

      The people (non-management) are super friendly, the flexible work schedule. The holiday party is nice time to unwind and mingle.

      Cons

      The management is horrible. If you are not in their circle or brown nosing you are a no body. You get 20 mins to eat for working an 8 hour day. You cant get up to stretch without having to clock out. Do not recommend getting the insurance through the place unless you don't mind spending $200-$300 a paycheck of not more because they found loopholes so that the employees suffer while they fatten their pocket. Don't bother asking for a raise because they wont give it to you even if you work hard and maintain and exceptional work record.

      Awful experience as paralegal. Should have never given them a try.

      Pros

      Flexible schedule open 8am -8pm so you can make your 40 hours. Easy interview. Decent starting pay for paralegal for $16 an hour.

      Cons

      You’re not a paralegal, you’re basically a telemarketer who is on the phone all day. It’s so easy to mess up and get fired. If you clock in and take long to log into the system, it notifies your boss. They track everywhere you are in the building. If you work 8 hours, you only get 20 min lunch break. Anything less is only 10 min lunch break. You don’t know who the attorneys are. People curse you out on the phone everyday. Terrible environment and very boring. I heard bad things about this job and decided to give them a chance. Dumb decision on my part. First few weeks are training and you learn about the process of collecting money. First week you take a 175 question test

      Pros

      Flexible schedule and nice co workers. Managers were fine but can play favorites.

      Cons

      They have a TV screen monitoring all incoming calls. It beeps every few minutes and gets incessantly louder if a person is on hold to long. Then someone comes out of their office and starts yelling that no one is picking up the phone. Well, when there are 25 calls ringing and 10 people in the office at 8am, what do you expect? Then they just go back into office and close door, managers don't offer to pick up phone to help. Benefits are a joke. Over $400 month for 1 person. Good luck supporting a family. No bonus structure anymore, no incentive and minimal pay raise.
