billing specialist, New York, NY - January 24, 2016
First of all, you will be quoted a salary but you will not in fact receive it. They will break it down to "per hour". You receive the quoted salary only if you work 8 hrs a day. Then, when you are hired, you are told you cannot work 8 hours and you must take a full hour lunch. Management will not allow or pay when you do overtime. Therefore, you get paid for 7 hours of work which results in a lowered salary. You do not get an end of the year bonus. If you do get a bonus you only get $50 for the first 10 years of working at the firm and $100 for longer. Not a friendly atmosphere, the Partners aren't too nice, they seem to get off on keeping everyone on edge and afraid of loosing their job. Promotion for Associates doesn't happen much. No diversity. The workload is extreme. Staff- you can't do overtime because you won't get paid but you do it anyway because if you do not finish the work load you will be reprimanded. It's like constantly being between a rock and a hard place. No perks, average benefits. The managing partner that runs everything is past retirement age and won't retire, therefore, the firm is very very old fashion and in the dark ages. If you need supplies like pens or post-its, you only get one or two. Their ethics are weird, never worked at a firm like this one.
