Legal Assistant (Former Employee) – Williamsville, NY – November 6, 2018
Sometimes had issues with other departments sending out information that affect our departments work. I didn't have issues with my manager or the work. If I had an issue or a question, I knew I could ask staff or my manager. Liked wearing jeans everyday and able to work 4, 10 hour days. The work and the environment is what you make of it.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Every day I spent as an employee of this firm was a delight. I would happily work there again if the opportunity ever presented itself. The staff, management and everyone associated with this firm is fantastic; exactly why they were nominated for one of Buffalo's best employers.
Paid Lunches, Bagel Fridays, Summer Hours, Very Colleague Based

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.

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.
