    I have been working at SingerLewak full-time

    Pros

    Decent work-life balance during the holidays, average pay

    Cons

    Manager input is not valued, favoritism, no work remote, no firm leadership, and all about the hours and not the value to the client

    Advice to Management

    Fix the house from the top down. Upper management does not have control over their staff and have no leadership skills. Staff are allowed to fabricate lies about management team members and not reprimanded for their actions. Large amounts of favoritism, old school firm.

    Some Partners act like they are better than you. They treat everyone like a lower form of life.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate how the employees are being treated by some of the partners. They're driving good staff away.
