Very professional and relaxed atmosphere to work in. Great management team to work with. The workplace culture is diversified. The most enjoyable part of the job is cross training and learning new tasks.
Great management and advancement of career opportunities.
Contested Litigation Attorney (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – January 24, 2018
As an associate attorney, I truly enjoyed working at McCalla Raymer. We had a strong group of attorneys and staff, and the managing partner was a strong seasoned attorney and an exceptional person. It was truly an honor to work at McCalla Raymer.
McCalla started off a few years ago as a great work environment with good people and structure. Due to the reduction in foreclosure homes thought the firm is on very shaky ground in Florida where management tells you things are fine and then the next week a layoff occurs. Due to this issue moral has been abolished and its only a matter of time before they shut down the Orlando office
Working for McCalla Raymer LLC was a great experience. I had to opportunity and ability to interact effectively with people on all levels. McCalla Raymer is a firm that offeres all the tools needed to assist their employees with their everday task
Foreclosure (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – January 12, 2015
I was at McCalla Raymer, LLC for a little over 3 years and it was truly a great experience. The Foreclosure management was always very approachable and had an open door policy. I was able to learn a lot within my time there and will be forever grateful. Foreclosure is a fast pace environment and you will certainly work hard everyday, but they also make sure to balance it with happy hours, summer family events, free lunches and a generous holiday schedule.
Legal Assistant (Former Employee) – Florida – November 20, 2014
For a law firm that deals with Foreclosures and works for the banks, they are one of the most friendliest and caring organizations I have ever worked with. Of course McCalla Raymer is not perfect, but they do try their best to do the right thing by their employees and show how much they are appreciated.
Every year the owners throw monthly or quarterly functions which include lunches, ice cream socials, happy hours, a company picnic, and a fabulous Holiday party. In addition they give you 3 weeks of PTO every year, which you don't have to worry about accruing. The majority of employees can take advantage of flex-schedules which in times of crisis can be a Godsend. Oh and the one thing I will miss very much is the amount of Holidays we would get off each year. Most businesses give you 6 to 7 holidays off a year, but MR gives you 11 to 13 a year; with days like Columbus Day and the Day after Thanksgiving.
Working there so long I was sad I had to go, but another opportunity came around that I could not pass up.
As far as improvements, although not many, I do think managers need to be more engaged with their staff and work with them a little closer. Some of them spend too much time at their desk and not enough time working with their staff as a team and helping everyone be stronger.
Some managers rather sit in their office then help their team
Legal Assistant (Former Employee) – Roswell, GA – November 13, 2014
One of the best things about this company is they do allow some people to work from home. I was able to work from home the entire 18 months I worked for them. They have good benefits- good medical/dental/vision, 401k, life insurance, and paid holidays and vacation.
Most of my interaction with co-workers and managers was done via email although I was provided with an internet phone and occasionally participated in conference calls/training. Everyone was pleasant and easy to get along with. Although, managers seem to come and go quite often in my department.
As with any job, there is always the possibility of being let go, but they steadily let people go the whole time I was there so I never felt completely comfortable as far as job stability. It's a great place to work if you can continue working there.
Foreclosure (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – November 11, 2014
Worthless company with no morals or respect for employees. Frequent layoff for dedicated workers. No training, Human Resource-Orlando / Human Resource-Atlanta clueless, worthless and unprofessional, basically only names with titles. HR don't the meaning and purpose of Human Resource. In the event of layoff employees lose your PTO vacation. Managing attorney in other office responsible for lay off of all employees. Better off applying with other foreclosure law firms.
Being apart of McCalla Raymer has given me great learning experince. I love the people I work with even when some days the workload can get stressful. I love that we get 13 paid holiday off and a sufficient amount of paid time off as well.
