    I worked at Shapiro & DeNardo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Casual dress Paid Time Off Employee Trips/Picnics

    Cons

    Pay isn't great (not bad) 30 minute lunch Slightly longer work day Hourly pay, not salary

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate good work your employees do. Management seems to also be all related or friends who have been promoted within before harder working employees.

    I have been working at Shapiro & DeNardo full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Laid back, relaxed attire, semi flexible work hours Monday through Friday

    Cons

    Under staffed, a bit unorganized

    Advice to Management

    Need to teach the entire process of the specific process instead of skipping steps. Employees know what they are doing but they don't know why they are doing they work.

    Pros

    Casual Dress Easy to Learn PTO Friendly coworkers Activities

    Cons

    Nepotism Too much family HR Attorneys who do not care Managers do not care

    Advice to Management

    Stop the nepotism! Just because they are your family or friends of someone you are related to does not mean they deserve a job doing something a legal assistant is more qualified for! Show your good employees your appreciation with pay raises otherwise you will lose those idividuals. Stop letting Supervisors make the Team Leads do everything. People notice.

    I worked at Shapiro & DeNardo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    SOME nice managers (about two total), Casual Dress every day, a lot of activities for employees, employees are like family to each other

    Cons

    Upper Management promotes family and people with absolutely NO experience for the jobs titles they hold. It seems like a legal background doesn't matter as long as you have family in high places.

    Advice to Management

    Hire experienced people and stop hiring so much family! That causes a riff with the employees and they feel like they have no say or no real voice

    I worked at Shapiro & DeNardo full-time

    Pros

    Umm, free parking? Heat? Kinda hard pressed to come up with any pros. Oh, you can dress like a slob, its complimentary to the surroundings.

    Cons

    This is about as bad as it gets people. Unqualified people running the place with inflated egos and sense of self importance; personality disorders are a prerequisite for the position. Boring, robotic 'work' which really should be automated because humans do things like eat, smile and laugh, and don't find foreclosing on someone's house to be the highlight of their life (well, normal people don't). Ethics and conscientiousness...

    Advice to Management

    Seek a consultant in professional management.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Shapiro & DeNardo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The dress code is casual. You get PTO days instead of separate sick/personal/vacation days and the amount of PTO you accrue depends on how long you've been there.

    Cons

    Management doesn't do anything about real issues. One manager in particular literally does nothing all day. Same manager lies about staff to the office manager. Also very snobby.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management. Also don't treat good employees like garbage while treating lazy employees like gold. Also distribute the work more evenly.
