    Ethical Powerhouse

    Aug 3, 2022 - Attorney in Phoenix, AZ
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Highest ethical standards. They have your back as long as you’re honest with them. “It’s not a matter of ‘if’ you’ll mess up, it’s a matter of ‘when’ … but what matters most is how you deal with your mess up.” Work hard and own up to your f’ups when they do occur, and you’ll do well here.

    Cons

    It’s Big Law - a big case/project steam rolls through everything. You must be willing to do whatever it takes regularly, and be strategic in any battle for time away you may wish to take.

    Absolutely Not

    Aug 30, 2022 - Administrative Staff in Phoenix, AZ
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    They PRETEND to care about their employees and future staff members. Sell you on the idea that they're very friendly and loving to all their staff members. pretend to give you the best salary for your position you applied to. they PRETEND to have good benefits. they PRETEND to have a good vacation/sick day pay off.

    Cons

    Absolutely horrible to all staff members. they pay you very low, even if you're more than qualified for the position. they'll gossip which is not work appropriate. If you accidentally end up pregnant they will switch you positions ONLY AFTER you 100% bend over backwards and drop words like Discrimination in order to move to a position that's better for you and your unborn child. then they will gaslight you and tell you the second you pop your little baby out they're moving you right back to your old position. there's no paid maternity leave. they take all your sick/vacation/holiday time off and make you use it for any appointments you have. if you use those days you have to pay the firm back the money they lost for you not being there. they force you to get 40 hours a week by making you sign in directly on time and you cant go a minute over. you have to clock in DIRECTLY on time and clock out DIRECTLY on time. they force you to pay for parking which is like $90 a month out of your paycheck they're horrible and toxic. I currently work here and I want to blow my brains out. they tell you that they have really good benefits but you'll be paying thousands of dollars if you aren't a single white male making 4k a month.

    Flexibility

    Pros

    I've never seen an organization that was willing to be as flexible as this one.

    Cons

    Defined parameters are lacking. However, that's part of what makes the job fun and challenging--no two days are the same.
