The secretaries starting times are staggered which is good. I constantly learned new ways of doing my work. Our computer programs were updated regularly. The hardest part of this job is the ratio of attorneys to one secretary.
Total Negativity from Partners and Shareholders...Total disrepect.
Paralegal (Former Employee) – Columbia, SC – April 22, 2018
I would not recommend anyone work here. The attorney, I provided work to was demonic....All the attorneys talked bad about the paralegals in front of their peers...Total lack of respect and appreciation for their paralegals.
Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – January 10, 2018
I loved my job at Ogletree. Unfortunately if you make mistakes you are not made aware. Then, you are let go claiming it just wasn't a good fit. I had no idea I was making mistakes, I worked hard, I was thanked by the attorneys and staff for tasks I did. Management needs to check in more to find out how things are going or to make sure things are running smoothly. A few months ago I emailed my supervisor to ask if I were doing a good job. My supervisor replied that I was doing a great job.
Good benifits, employees from other offices were always eager to help
Paralegal (Current Employee) – Raleigh, NC – August 2, 2017
Fast passed environment however you have the option to make it as stressful or not stressful as you'd prefer. Attorneys are great about adjusting your caseload to meet your needs. If you are learning a new visa type, there are always people happy to help.
Senior Manager (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – May 1, 2017
The Firm has a great culture and is constantly growing. The Firm covers the cost of parking in the building and has coffee, water and different soda available for everyone's enjoyment in the kitchens. The office is good about bringing in birthday treats each month and having some fun to break things up a bit. Everyone here works hard and to the best of their ability, but will always stop what they are doing to help someone else. Working at Ogletree means your days will be fast paced, challenging and busy, but you will be doing it with a group of solid individuals who have a service mindset.
Free Parking, Good Benefits, Profit Sharing, Challenging
Administrative Support Services - Receptionist II (Former Employee) – Greenville, SC – April 26, 2017
Routine workday in an introductory position, with little interaction with management, or coworkers due to isolation of position. The most difficult part of the job was how unchallenging it was given the tedious, repetitive nature of the position. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting and speaking with clients and vendors.
legal secretary (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – December 14, 2015
The attorneys here have heavy caseloads and accordingly, the secretarial desks are very busy. The training is great if you know where to look/who to ask, but be wary of being thrown into the water without a life vest, initially. Everyone is fairly supportive, but you should definitely come with experience. Most everyone here is at the top of their game. Office is working on issues re management, and it is looking good so far. Associates are congenial, shareholders are a bit tough to get through. Hard to feel welcome when they call you "___'s secretary" instead of by name.
Regular meetings to attend to any issues that may come up, opportunities for overtime.
Sometimes mandatory overtime, impersonal corporate hierarchical culture.
Office Assistant (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – April 21, 2015
A typical day at my job, I come in the morning do a walk around the office checking all copiers & printer, load paper, check toner. I check emails & faxes that come to our office. I restock the kitchen ordering supplies for the entire office. I assets the Admin with any assignment they need my help with. I setup computers as well as telephones for visitors that we may have during the day.
My co- workers are great everyone is a TEAM PLAYER which is always good.
The hardest part of my job is trying to keep Everyone happy which is no easy task..
The most enjoyable part of my job is that I have one, I get to wake up and come to work every morning, and help someone.
