This could be a really awesome company. Woman owned and operated. However, the owner treats some employees better than others. She routinely hires minorities that are way underpaid for the work that they are expected to perform. You get a 30 minute lunch and she loves you if you work overtime but doesn't pay you for the overtime. She monitors employees and threatens to confiscate your cell phone if she sees you use it during work hours. All internet is blocked (she allows 15 minutes usage per day). There are cameras throughout the office so she can see what her employees are doing. She monitors the instant messaging on peoples desk tops...basically, she is watching your every move which to me says that she doesn't trust anyone to get their work done.
decent insurance benefits, transportation benefit
cameras spy on you, short breaks and low vacation days
Legal Assistant (Former Employee) – Vienna, VA – January 17, 2018
My typical day at Rosenberg & Associates would consist of checking the work queue and working the queues accordingly. I'd draft all Notices as needed (FDL, Demands and NOI's) Updating client sites with pertinent information regarding foreclosure process. I honestly did not learn anything new. Management is non existent and the work culture is petty and juvenile. The hardest part of maintaining this job was listening to my team lead complain and he consistently begged to borrow money. The most enjoyable part of my job were my teammates who were really good people.
My interactions with my teammates.
No vacation time, no sick time, no personal time off and half hr for lunch.

Good place to work to gain experience and training to move on to another company. Positions are entry level and they do not promote from within. Instead they hire managers with no experience that they "like". A lot of processors do the work of a manager or team lead while the actual manager is clueless.
Condescending managers and leaders. Everyone is a know it all.
If you're looking for an employee friendly place this one isn't for you.

The management team is very dated and in need of diversity training. If growth is what you're after, you'll be barking up the wrong tree. This is the kind of work environment where, it is what it is and that's all.
Title Reviewer (Former Employee) – Vienna, VA – April 4, 2016
I worked at Rosenberg and Associates, LLC for close to 2 years, when I was abruptly let go for an infraction that merely warranted a warning. The owner preaches that the company is a family, however, when employees make mistakes they are treated unfairly and with disrespect.
I do not recommend this company as they struggle with telling the truth about multiple HR policies and will change your pay schedule, overtime pay and PTO.
The best part of the company are the employees themselves.
Occasional Free Lunches, 98% Paid health insurance, 401K
No Cell Phone Policy, horrible management, grossly underpays employees, HR is incompetent
paralegal (Current Employee) – Vienna, VA – December 2, 2015
I've worked for Rosenberg & Associates for 3 years now. I'm overall happy with the environment. This company has offered myself room to advance and grow within my career. I've worked for a few law firms in the past and Rosenberg is one of the most professional companies I've worked with.
Assistant (Former Employee) – Bethesda, MD – July 10, 2015
Management needs to have training courses to learn how to communicate better with staff; staff needs to be taught how to conduct themselves as professionals and keep home life separate from work. Very little room for growth from within.
Post Foreclosure Paralegal (Former Employee) – Bethesda, MD – March 15, 2013
Rosenberg is a workplace that puts race and gender issues above education, skill or experience. This pulls the levels of professionalism, competency, accountability and civility down to the least common denominator. the most committed, professional and enthusiastic are regularly demeaned, compromised and hobbled by the restrictions imposed on those who treat their jobs like a privilege instead of an opportunity. the result is low wages and poor working environments and a sense that doing anything more than the minimum is a wasted effort. those who try face a moving goalpost, those who don't have job security.
hostile, divisive woking environment, no accountabillity in management
Overall I had a good experience in the Bethesda, MD and Vienna VA offices. Great people to work with, job security, post-sale, evictions, accounting, director of operations and BK managers are great. HR does not count in this office, the sole owner reigns and undoes the rules whenever is convenient to her. Honestly It is an ok place to start your career if willing to sacrificy a little. Wages are and will continue really low, it doesn't matter how long you stay there, no good benefits, there is no opportunity to grow (unless they like you, lots of favoritisim), and the foreclosure manager is out of touch and shortsighted. My advise is learn as much as you can and run, run fast out of there.
middle management, job security, co-workers
short breaks, really low wages, no room for advacement, big turnaround
A typical day was checking messages and taking care of any customer service issues and checking any AP that needed to be processed for the next several days. I would go through the 25-125 checks daily between 13 companies, follow procedures of creating spreadsheets for each company AR, make copies and prepare them for deposit into the bank. Scan each check and Spreadsheet and filing and updating the general ledgers both electronically and manually. I did weekly if not daily reconciliations to make sure Quickbooks and general ledgers were accurate in case checks had to be written against them by another employee. Weekly I'd check inter-company charge-backs and run an analysis report on income, budget discrepancies and outstanding invoices. I'd run a commission report monthly, send for approval and then make payments. Prior to my Accounting work I was in charge of Proofreading and Quality Control of High visibility client accounts because of my eye for detail and need for accurate and eye appealing documents. I was also able to produce high volume high quality work in half the time guaranteeing express quality delivery by often working on several windows at a time to guarantee uniform accuracy throughout a project.
The hardest part of the job was the thoughtless scanning of each page one by one that seemed never-ending.
Several co-workers who became good friends are the only thing that made the job enjoyable.
Management was very old-school in their ways and didn't take well to a new person coming and updating procedures to make her job easier and more efficient yet gettingmore... everything done as requested.less
