Horrible workplace
Legal Assistant (Former Employee) –  Williamsville, NYDecember 7, 2018
GP is a horrible place to work. Management is too clicky and barely work themselves. The partners are nastyy and their employees are severely overworked. People look over all miserable at their desks. I don’t know how they received any award for “ best place to work”. It’s literally the worst place to work!
Pros
Casual attire
Cons
Very negative workplace

Uncomfortable Work Atmosphere
Paralegal/Legal Assistant (Current Employee) –  Buffalo, NYOctober 25, 2018
The management at Gross Polowy, LLC, was at first impressive and I enjoyed working in a productive atmosphere with friendly co-workers. However, as the weeks rolled by, I noticed those same "friendly" co-workers spoke extremely negatively about me to management due to their own ill-will. There are several managers who are friends with their co-workers (which is fine), nevertheless, no worker should ever be reprimanded in the workplace due to gossip. My co-workers would be kind to me one moment, and comment negatively on my appearance the next. The management heard these untrue/childish claims and tried to scold me over them. I understand that Gross, Polowy LLC, is a professional work environment, but it is not professional for managers to pick favorites and use gossip with little evidence as means to reprimand a worker.
Pros
Free Lunches, Pto
Cons
Clique Environment, No Room for Growth

Beware
Anon (Former Employee) –  WilliamsvilleOctober 12, 2018
Beware of going to this company until they want to get their act together. Terrible management for the most part. People are rude and treat you like you’re the dirt on their shoes unless you’re high up. Turnover is ridiculous because they can’t keep anyone happy since they go behind people’s backs constantly, don’t value their employees and have low pay.
Pros
Four 10 hour work days
Cons
Pretty much everything

do not want to comment
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Amherst, NYAugust 7, 2018
Do not want to comment, do not feel comfortable. Management hires within, and if you get along with management you will be promoted. Management is very negative

Learn on your own
Paralegal (Former Employee) –  Williamsville, NYMarch 16, 2018
Management terrible, training minimal, no assistance, rude employees, managers have favorites. They don’t give you enough time to learn your job, they will fire you in a minute, lack of professionalism. No room for advancement. Brown nosers will win. If you take a job here be prepared to learn it all on your own.
Pros
Paid lunch, bagel Friday
Cons
Short lunch, rude employees, not professional

Ok place
Legal Assistant (Current Employee) –  Williamsville, NYOctober 9, 2017
The pay is on the lower end if law firms, but the firm tries to compensate with "fun Days" that include food trucks ect. They also allow for a 4 day work week where there are 10 hour days.

good place to work
Legal Assistant (Current Employee) –  Buffalo, NYSeptember 2, 2017
Not a bad place to work. The company tries to make employees happy by providing free lunches and food. Casual work environment- dress down everyday, get to wear flip flops in summer, and flexible work schedule.
Pros
free lunch, casual atmosphere
Cons
short lunch, not a lot of room to advance

One of Buffalo's Best Employers
Legal Assistant (Former Employee) –  Williamsville, NYNovember 15, 2016

Pros
Paid Lunches, Bagel Fridays, Summer Hours, Very Colleague Based

Awful
Legal Assistant (Current Employee) –  Williamsville, NY 14221August 31, 2016
Rude company. Management has no idea what is going on. Workers are mistreated by fellow staff, habitually and there is no respectable regard. The partners want prestige but those in command are going to be their downfall. In addition, to persons not respecting client rules or having any evident work ethic. Everyone pushes their work around. You cannot advance unless you're as rude as those on top and brown nose.
Cons
Everything.

Overly Challenging
Accounting Specialist (Former Employee) –  Williamsville, NYAugust 29, 2016
The job started off smoothly and what seemed to be the perfect job turned into a job less desired. Training for a highly stressful position was minimal and management was less than desirable in dealing with issues that may arise. Help was minimal and short staffing increased employee stresses, Lack of overtime approval would cause deadlines to become virtually impossible to meet and this would cause dissatisfaction by upper management.
Pros
paid lunch peroids
Cons
unpleasant work environment
