Tense workplace with high turnover
Attorney (Former Employee) – Waltham, MA – March 16, 2018
If your coworkers aren't fired, they'll quit soon enough. They underpay you while you're there but expect you to work around the clock doing essentially busywork. The attorneys are treated like customer service reps and paid like them, too. After a quick promotion (the person I replaced left because bonuses promised were months overdue) I was sent traveling, which is a lot less glamorous when the travel plans are 50% waiting in airports or rushing from one terminal to another and 50% waiting for clients who don't show up. The quality of work you receive from your overworked coworkers is spotty, and you'll be blamed for their failures (don't worry, so will they!). I knew it was going to be dodgy from the get-go: When I asked about work/life balance in the interview they just sort of shrugged and went "well, you know we expect you to work hard obviously." For the couple years I worked there, I wasn't even sure who my supervisor was.

Bad management, overwork, underpaid positions
