Attoney (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – May 15, 2017
The work place is quick moving and sometimes cut throat. Good attorneys with questionable management at lease during the time of employment. A very active marketing program, with tickets to some event being available at least several times a week. Work-life balance is ok, but the firm is all about billable hours.
I transcribed dictation received from several attorneys within the firm. I worked for a firm who represented insurance companies. I was responsible for maintaining each file up to date. I learned a lot from this job in compiling trial notebooks and reviewing medical records.
My co-workers were great to work with.
The hardest part of the job was that sometime the dictation would back up because of the type of work we were doing, but eventually we would get caught up.
I enjoyed maintaining the files and doing the dictation.
Large law firm with multiple attorneys and employees
