Litigation Executive in Cardiff
on 30 December 2020
Overworked and underpaid
The salary you start on is the salary you will remain on. Expected to work extra hours without pay and encouraged to log in at home outside of contracted hours. Unrealistic targets and unmanageable casleoad. Made to feel like you cannot call in sick and made to feel like everything you do isn't good enough.
Client Support Administrator in Alexander house, Manchester

Honestly the worst
One of the worst places I’ve ever worked. Very little pay, little to no opportunities of progression and an uncomfortable working atmosphere- favouritism and nepotism present throughout and management unapproachable and unhelpful. Would highly recommend looking elsewhere for any entry level positions for better pay and appreciation as an employee.
Fee Earner in Manchester, Greater Manchester
on 3 April 2020
Very Stressful
Workload of over 800 files in the recoveries department although the Fraud department is very relaxed. lots of favouritism, pressure is put on you for all your litigated files. The pay is low as well. All the people I knew have left that department people stay for the training contracts.
Project Manager in Trafford, Greater Manchester
on 18 January 2020
Awful - stay well away
They literally have no idea what they are doing. Systems don’t link, they can’t manage their way out of a paper bag and their new world / cosmos system that is over 3 years in development has been pulled. Bullying managers, backstabbing and hiding truth is the norm. If you value your sanity then go nowhere near this place. People are nice.
EVENING LEGAL AUDIO SECRETARY in Manchester, Greater Manchester
on 28 December 2019
Rigid rules
I worked on an evening shift quite a long time ago when they were based in Manchester. It was quite a big firm back then. On the plus side the pay was quite acceptable. On the minus side, your every move had to be accounted for, i.e. no cup of tea at your desk, nothing at all in fact. but to balance this they did have structured breaks. Every tiny company rule had to be adhered to regarding typing etc. You were expected to type up so many minutes of dictation a night, But then you may get stuck doing a large bundle at the photocopier and begin to panic as you hadn't officially made your quota! You had to fill in a time sheet so they could see exactly what you were doing. Also you could be working like a demon, as some of the fee earners would just say "do the bill" and then leave you to calculate all the figures on the bill and type the bill up which in effect was a lot of work but the dictation had only moved 1 second and so it looked as though you were doing nothing at all workwise even though you were working very hard!! All in all I didn't it a very nice place to work.
