Legal Secretary and Fee Liaison in Albuquerque, NM
on February 13, 2020
Working at Rose L. Brand & Associate's is great. It's so great that I am happy being underpaid when bls.gov says that the average pay for a paralegal is $20-24 an hour. Some people have worked there for over a year, maybe even over a year and a half and have not received a review or evaluation. The atmosphere is full of people who have never been poor and it shows. By that, I mean people who are commended for their customer service skills here would not cut it in any sort of real corporate environment. Prepare to get a lot of pushback from people who have been there longer just because you want to learn or refuse to suck up to them. Emails are often rude and unhelpful between coworkers. Prepare to be told that you're wrong even though you're right because your paralegal can't be bothered to explain a task to you because they're busy gossiping and talking about personal problems. This place is good if you're a mom if only because they really seem to try to help moms. However, it would be better if people were paid a living wage here. Maybe the turnover would not be so high. Management may say the turnover rate isn't that bad but over the course of my employment at RLBA I have witnessed at least 10 people leaving for the same reasons. While I was employed here, over 3/4 of a new training class quits. They will move your desk around and shuffle your tasks around repeatedly without much warning so be prepared. There is conflict between what is SOP and what is "easier". Be prepared to be trained on one way how to do a task, then receive 5 different responses from 5 different people insisting that the way we were trained is wrong and that their one perspective is correct. The work environment is toxic in that it's mostly white people who were told their whole lives that they were really smart and had the privilege of working white collar jobs. There are some normal people in there, but most of them are rich in that they drive brand new cars and eat out everyday yet complain about every minute detail that happens in their boring lives. The worst part is when you know that somebody got there because of connections because you'd see them blatantly disregard rules (having phones out on the floor violates SOP) - all they're gonna get is a slap on the wrist and an "Ah, they'll learn to be more responsible eventually" type of response where anybody else should have been written up. They throw these big parties with fun jumps and petting zoos at churches but won't pay their employees more. They will call a $50 christmas check "incentive pay" when in fact it is not. They have days where we have to earn the privilege of wearing jeans and shirts but in the end it's pointless because the allowable theme during these days is something corresponding to the month. That means Christmas shirts during December, St. Patrick's Day shirts for all of March, and so on. It's okay, but again I would rather be paid more than have to buy silly shirts. However, that is the dress code here and if you can't do business casual, this job is probably not for you. Overall, just get your experience and move on up and out to better things. Use this place as your 1.5 years in a job for your resume for the next one.

This firm is about 5-10% of the number of people they claim to have. They do not care about what they do or say. Be very careful if you even apply to this place.
Paralegal and Team Lead in Albuquerque, NM

It's been a while since I worked at this company; however, I can absolutely say that it affected me for worse for other jobs I've had in the legal profession. Skills and legal knowledge are things you can learn in many places, and I disagree with the idea that this is a place to gain that knowledge. My legal skills were not things I cultivated at this company. Yes, I learned what the bare bones of a court case looked like, but I never truly learned the substance of drafting pleadings. What I learned instead was to treat myself poorly, suffer gaslighting from management, and be underappreciated in pay and benefits. It has taken significant effort to unwork my unhealthy stress responses developed at this company (which by the end culminated in me being physically sick before going to work). The current salary range for paralegals is also saddening, especially given the time and experience being asked for from applicants. I have been doing paralegal work for the time-frame mentioned in their current job openings and where I am I get paid significantly more, with better benefits and in a nourishing workplace environment, with a manager and team members I care deeply about. When I was promoted to a mid-level management position at this company, I had to fight for any raise at all, which ended up being a meager 50 cents an hour for already below-industry paralegal pay. It wasn't until I quit that I was even called in to be offered a more-than-meager raise, despite being consistently told how integral I was to my team. I will gladly admit that it has been a while since I've been at this company. Is it possible that things could have changed? Absolutely. Am I convinced any potential changes resulted in substantive, quality-of-life improvements for employees? Absolutely not. In my opinion, the problems were so systemic that I am not confident they can be extricated, as they came from the very fabric of the organization. You are better off going elsewhere.

Working here made me physically sick. If I could rate lower than 1 star I would. Management doesn't care about you. HR manager was condescending and cruel. You're expected to not have any life outside of RLBA, which is an unhealthy way for employees to live. The negative reviews are all spot-on in my experience. The positives all sound strangely similar, and were posted at basically the same time...

The Good: Pays well and CEO has deep pockets if you're well-liked. Learning the BASICS of the legal profession. Retirement plan, health benefits and advanced use of technology. Gift card for your birthday. The bad: Management makes poor decisions. Favoritism and nepotism run wild like cancer.You are expected to be an expert a day after being trained. Employee of the month awards are used as manipulative tools to keep people from quitting rather than actually showcasing a good employee.
