    I worked at RCO Legal full-time

    Pros

    There were NO pros, this place was awful.

    Cons

    Felt like prison, always overloaded with an unreasonable workload, always under the microscope wondering if you were going to be escorted out while someone packed up your desk for you.

    Advice to Management

    Orange County office pretty much went under so that tells you something.

    The company offers medical benefits.

    Horrible place to work. High turnover rate. Working with banks that are foreclosing on people's houses really sucks. Expected to do 80 hours of work in a 40 hour work week. Nasty fellow employees. Several people warned me not the take the job...why didn't I listen?

    Pros

    The only good thing about the company was the extremely laid back dress code. The attorneys were really laid back and super easy to work with. Working with really nice attorneys is what kept me going daily. I enjoyed assisting the attorneys. Only a few people there was easy to get along with and work with.

    Cons

    Management needs to learn to communicate better with its staff. No room for advancement. If you want to learn to learn to draft court documents, no one is willing to train you and you remain stuck in the position that you're in. Some if the employees need to check their ego at the door because office setting isn't a place for competition. When it comes to teamwork, the staff won't help out at all. You're basically doing things yourself when you ask for assistance.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to communicate with your staff. Teach other staff members how to draft documents.
