Not the place you would want your child to work in.
Manager/Supervisor (Former Employee) – New York – July 18, 2018
Instead of giving a long explanation I'll have just short descriptions:
You're on your own Staff is not important Nepotism is a core value No loyalty Compensation none existent Trust no one Stealing time is good Don't care attitude is rewarded Giving more than 70% of your best is considered a threat Leadership cares more about Twitter views No common sense Discrimination on all levels Sweatshop Women, I'll leave that alone #meetoo Associates are only one kind of people look it up "Tokens" are the golden ticket
If you're wondering about me well I left for these reasons. I feel really bad about all those employees who did not have better luck.

The office manager was a complete jerk. Companies think just because you served our country those skills will translate into an office setting. They don't!!! There's no unity. Everyone is out for themselves. This place is so bad that employees have committed or attempted to commit SUICIDE!!!

Management was horrible and very misleading. Firm is very corporate and very cold. It appeared that staff was unhappy with many aspects of the firm, i.e., very low wages, longer days than other firms and their vacation benefits, if you want to call it benefits, is almost unheard of nowadays.
Overall, I have nothing bad to say about my time at GT. It was a couple weeks short and not very eventful as I was offered my current role right at the beginning of my tenure there.
I liked the people I worked with, however with management in a separate office the department lacked leadership. A manager was brought in on my last days who seemed like a great fit for the role! However, I can’t determine that at this point.
The job function itself was very stressful, which I expect in my line of work. However at times the calls received were borderline nerve wracking! Seasoned experienced professionals in the department however took calls with ease.
The trend of bad turnover also seemed to be a trend in that office as in 5 weeks I saw about 6 coworkers either transfer offices/departments or resign altogether.
All in all, my personal experience at GT was not bad... had I not been offered a role with my current employer I would have probably stayed for a bit. To me the worse part of my day was the commute on the 826.
This job was 11 years ago and they have since relocated to another building in Miami. The people were super and management was great. I learned that I am more of a people person than ever realized when working in the finance department and I would never see another soul or sign of life for longer than I could handle.

My favorite part about working at GT was the community culture. The managing shareholders are friendly and care about the employees happiness, health, and overall life. The staff is friendly and each department truly works as a team, supporting each other and sharing workloads as needed. The C-Levels are liberal and very open to all types of people and this trickles down into all of the offices, attorneys, and staff making it a great, progressive place to work.
Occasional free lunches, happy "minutes", large open cubicles

I work and manage my cases on a day to day basis but also assist with coordinating projects for other offices. Finding paralegals that fit the request of the project and looking for those that need more billable hours.
