One of the better places to work
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
