Legal Assistant, Buffalo, NY - January 8, 2016
I had a tremendous workload and was compensated nicely for it. I enjoyed all of my co-workers. One noticeable problematic area is that the better you are at your job, the more responsibility you are given and the workloads are not fair at all. You've got some people breaking their necks to meet deadlines and then you've got other workers who are able to "chat" with co-workers for great spans of time throughout the day. Management is ok, but could be a little bit more "in touch" with the day-to-day workings and not just have an attitude of "it must get done, or else!" I learned quite a bit while working there, but there is not a lot of room for growth unless you come in at a very young age and/or work for a equity partner. I'd say benefits are comparable to other large firms in the area.
