I wouldn't work for them again put it that way, work hard but they don't care. If you weren't in their click then you were a nobody.
The salary was the best benefit, receiving decent pay increases every year but you had to jump through hoops to get it.

I worked in the litigation team as a temp and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. Training for a few days and easily grasped responsibilities. Excellent working environment and would recommend this firm to anyone.

I have enjoyed working with great managers, the only thing i would say is that it's hard to get a promation or a pay increase, and if you apply for another job within the firm you still have to be interviewed

No training provided, however expected to know everything, when mistakes made you are to guess how to fix, as there is no coatching or assistance.
Staff seem to be run down and over worked.

Very rude staff and not welcoming to newcomers.

Poor management.

A comfortable working space with friendly staff who were always willing to help. Workplace culture was surprisingly less intense than anticipated and it was a job worth looking forward to everyday.

A great team environment. Very family friendly and flexible working hours and rewards for good work performance.

Working with Slater and Gordon allowed me the ability to help people in a less fortunate situation, and to assist them with their claims to ensure they reached the best outcomes in their daily life and future.


A very friendly culture and very social.


Management was always approachable, and willing to guide all levels.
Pros
free lunches, drinks and functions / events

1 day of training given in a trainee position.
Senior legal assistant complains when you get things wrong but complains more when you ask for help.

Hostile environment.

Manager is over critical on newcomer with no experience and expects everything to be perfect from day 1.

If you don't have experience then don't work here because experience will not be provided to you.
Pros
None
Cons
Low pay, hostile environment, manager doesn't want to help you, no training provided
