Would not recommend DWF to a Junior Paralegal
Paralegal (Former Employee) –  Liverpool, Merseyside25 March 2019
Bulling and Harassment of Management over junior staff.

Even when you exceed your targets they always find reasons to verbally abuse you.

This was the brunch in Liverpool however, other offices may differ.

The paralegals do not stand a change of a TC over external candidates.

2/3 of the applicant's for a TC are external applicants.
Pros
quick progression in insurance claims as a fee earner, flexible hours
Cons
Verbal abuse, threats, long hours over capacity constantly

Wouldn't recommend.
Paralegal (Current Employee) –  Leeds11 June 2018
This is not a good place to work. There are other firms out there who will give you real experience needed to grow professionally and personally, opportunities to progress and will pay you (relatively) well.

The culture is toxic. Only conformity is tolerated and ridicule (even from high up) comes from deviation. If you try to raise concerns to managers or HR you’re brushed off.
Pros
Effort is put into social events.
Cons
No acknowledgement of hard work, no real structure or guidance available (poor managers), no training, poor pay, bullying/manipulation comes from the top and all around, rumours of harassment in departments which no one does anything about, HR do not deal with concerns.

Good employer. Work remedial
Paralegal (Former Employee) –  Manchester, Greater Manchester17 August 2017
Start about 15mins early to get a good head start. Recover costs of repairs and complete Claims Forms to issue proceedings against the Defendant.

How solicitors work. Professionalism.

Laissez faire.

Young. Straight from law school. Hadn't had any real life experiences. Formal work attire however you could choose to where more relaxed clothing.

Too much tedious paperwork and not being on the phones negotiating claims and settling them as a claims handler would do.

Getting to know how solicitors operate.
Pros
The experience gained
Cons
The sheer amount of tedious paperwork
